It's difficult to say exactly what the lump is but is does require further investigation in terms of an X-ray and ultrasound scan of your ankle. I would also want to repeat your blood work. You can get an inflammatory arthritis associated with lyme disease that could be causing an inflamed swollen ankle joint that could explain your symptoms and the lump.
