Knuckle bump

Hello there once again!

I'm an issue with my finger. I've been hangboarding lately and generally speaking getting strong during my bouldering training. Yesterday, I did some hangboarding for about 15 minutes and when I was done I saw this bump on my first knuckle closest to the tip of my finger. In my mind, it seems to be a bone spur though I'm not sure if it's something worse ie. arthritis. I'm 27 so I feel it might be a little early for something like that but I'm sure it's not completely out of the realm of possibility. So, the bump is firm and slightly tender though it doesn't stop me from crimping or affect the range of motion. The firmness makes me rule out it being a cyst of sorts.

Any ideas? here are some pictures to help.
