In brief: Bunion

It is a bony prominence on the inside of the foot at the big toe.
It is a misalignment which causes the big toe to become angled toward the little toes - where the term hallux valgus comes from. It can create pain in shoes, problems with foot function and can be treated by conservative and surgical means. Not all bunions are the same. See a podiatrist and have your foot examined properly.
