I have a bump on my shin but im able to move it like its a piece of bone. Could this be a fracture? Although I don't ever remember hitting my shin.

In brief: Possible fracture

Usually you would remember a trauma to cause a fracture.
It would be a good idea to have an ortho doc eval you.

In brief: Sesamoid bone

This an extra piece of bone that floats like a small island .
This is normal and occurs in a small percentage of people. Show it your doctor at your next appointment but there is no reason to worry
