hard to tell without exam. Best to see your Ortho MD.

It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It is unlikely that what you are feeling is the soleus muscle as it is hidden under gastrocnemius. It would be prudent to see a doctor. Wish you good health!
