Callous after rhinoplasty
Closed rhinoplasty candidate, some advices:
The harmony between facial parts makes us instinctively recognize the beauty... without knowing it, without defining it, just a perception that surprises and captivates us.
In this regard, I suggest perform a Closed Rhinoplasty (without visible scars) to treat the tip, base and nasal bridge.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features.

Bump after rhinoplasty
It is common to have some firmness in areas where work was done. These should soften up in time. Keep following up with your surgeon however, to make sure it is healing as expected. Occasionally these bumps of scar tissue can stay hard, and the doctor can give an injection of steroid to soften it and help it smooth
Bump on Nose after Rhinoplasty
You are very early out from the rhinoplasty, and there is still swelling and scar tissue present that should soften/improve with time. If the bump gets bigger (or you are concerned in general), I recommend contacting your surgeon to discuss the issue.
