Hi and welcome to HCM.
It can be fat deposti or calcium deposit but also your arhritis may be caused by autoimmune disorders and then it may manifest with nodular subcutaneous lesions. Whatever it is, treament is based on antiinflammatory and steroid therapy administered orally or by injections. Certain exercies may help to but all this is degenerative process of aging. WIsh you good health.
