Early ganglion: There are many reasons for this, therefore appropriate diagnostic exam and perhaps mri.
It may be a ganglion cyst, capsular or ligament injury etc.

Have it evaluated: Possible cause of your pain may include sprain, bursitis, fracture, contusion, neuritis, but of course there are a multitude of other possibilities. Get the feet inspected by a professional to determine the cause of the problem, as treatment varies depending on the diagnosis.
