I sprained my ankle years ago. Since, I have had a bump under my ankle on the inside that is hard and sensitive to pressure. Why?

Trauma/sprains: Ankle sprains may result in a number of long-term problems. Sometimes, the ligaments will pull off a piece of bone (avulsion fracture) when you are injured, and this may result in long-term sensitivity or pain. Alternatively, you may have ruptured the ligaments around your ankle. If the problem is bothering you, I would recommend seeing a local Podiatrist to have x-rays and further evaluation ...Read more

Pain and deformity in the back of the ankle suggests an achilles injury or even heel bone fracture. A true high ankle sprain should always be evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon because sometimes they need surgery if the ligaments between the tibia and fibula are completely torn. ...Read more

Residual swelling: Sometimes because of the soft tissue trauma there is residual swelling left over (the damaged tissues separate easier & retain fluid).Thus you may require additional wrapping &/or leg elevation for resolution of this edema. I would recommend you see a Podiatrist or Sports Medicine MD. They may recommend additional Physical Therapy for ankle proprioception exercising & edema massage. Keep us posted. ...Read more
