Bumps On Shin Symptoms
Could a painless bump on the shin be a blood clot? If so could it be linked to or a symptom of dvt?
Unlikely: A bump in the shin area could be the result of injuring oneself, or a fatty tumor. One can develop a bump from Superficial thrombopheblitis that can occur in the anterior leg, but would most likely be painful. A DVT is defined in the deep veins which occur deep in the muscles of the leg, or thigh. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

See your doctor: The only way to know for sure is to be examined and tested for STDs. You should do this as soon as possible and refrain from intercourse until you know for sure and any infections have been treated. Good luck. Read more
Location?: If it is just below the kneecap at the top of the shin, it may just be the growth/attachment plate ofthe upper leg muscles. It can get lumpy/squishy/painful during the early part of the pre-teen/teen years. If it is further down the leg it is likely shin splints or a bone bruise. Your doc can figure it out.

Lumps and bumps: You are an 18 year old female with a painful bump, please see your doctor. Unless there has been direct trauma to explain this I have a high suspicion and concern. This must be worked up. Orthopaedics has a protocol based on your age and location of bump. This is not to be ignored. Read more

New itchy rash: Any new itchy rash can be due to a new medicine, soap, detergent or skin care product. Those are the most likely culprits. Stop any new products. Call your doc if you have started a new medicine and it is giving you a rash. If it does not resolve in 2-3 days when stopping the new product, see MD. Read more

Orthopaedics consult: If you have significant night pain, an osteoid osteoma comes to mind. However, the best answer is to refer you to an orthopaedic surgeon for a full history and exam. Imaging such as x-rays helps in the diagnosis of such issues. Have you had any trauma to your shin? Playing sports? Your physician will be able to look at your leg in person and give expert advice. Good luck. Read more
