In brief: Likely trigger thumb
If the lump is on the palmar side of your thumb by the web space it is likely "stenosing tenosynovitis" or "trigger thumb" this can cause clicking or locking.
It may respond to a steroid injection. If not siimple release under local anesthesia is immediately corrective.
