A 43-year-old male asked:
If leg ulcer is found on the front of the leg aprox 10 CM from knee cap, could it still be a veneous ulcer? Unusual for my age? But what else?

Abrasion: Venous ulcers usually do not occur in the pretibial area. Is there a scab that could be from a contusion or abrasion? These may take days to weeks to fill in from below and fully heal. A vascular surgeon could be consulted if it isn't healing.
