Biggeek42Welcome to Arthritis-Health
For other member's information, as well as yours, this is what I found upon research.Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that involves 2 primary processes: the cartilage in the joints break down abnormal bony growths, osteophytes, or bone spurs, develop in the joint.
Have you seen a specialist for this yet?

Generally speaking Osteoarthritis is not going to create a bump or lump. As to what Sandra posted above, the bone spurs can be created, but you are unlikely to feel them on the outside.
A bump or knot that you can feel/see on the outside could be a pinched nerve, part of a muscle strain, pulled muscle, etc
Since you stated that you do not have any pain, the next time you see your PCP, bring this up to them.
If for any reason, the lump increases in size or becomes painful, then call your doctor!
