Bump on nose
Long answer - it is likely the nasal bone edge. As you are aging the bone might be becoming more prominent from growth or from the surrounding tissue becoming thinner. If you desire is to remove it, the surgery is relatively straight forward. In your case you would not need to go to sleep if that was all that was being addressed.
Only you can decide

Correction will require osteotomies to move the bones back to the midline
