In brief: Tendinosis

The pain is likely at the insertion of the achilles tendon and represents inflammation, and even possible partial tear of the fibers and the lump represents active repair. If the lump is pain free, no worries.
If it is painful then you need to see your orthopaedic surgeon for evaluation and management.

In brief: Achilles

This could be achilles tendinosis that may include a 'pump bump' or bony formation into the achilles tendon, called an enthesophyte.
A specialist can take xrays to determine the extent of any bony involvement in the tendon.
