In brief: Plantar Fibroma

Sounds like plantar fibroma.
These are benign growths that occur in the arch of the foot. They can be painful or not, but once become symptomatic will require some sort of treatment that can be best discussed with a podiatrist. Different shoe inserts, custom orthotics, topicals or injections may be required. Surgery is the last option for these.

In brief: Painful Arch Lumps

This can also been seen from friction caused by an orthotic device with too high an arch, or even a shoe arch in a flat footed person.
A podiatrist could help you evaluate the diagnosis and recommend treatment options. Dr Rich Blake

In brief: Could be

plantar fibromas but that is a guess based on why you revealed.
Certainly, the foot would need to be examined...

In brief: Plantar fibroma

Is most likely diagnosis based on your description.
Supportive shoes and padding may provide some relief. See podiatrist to have this evaluated so tretment options can be explored.
