There: There are five reasons for a painful testicular mass that are very concerning: - testicular torsion: when the testicle twists on itself and cuts off its blood supply, - testicular cancer - epidiymitis: inflammation of the epididymus often caused by infection - strangulated inguinal hernia - acute orchitis: infection of the testes other less concerning reasons for a testicular mass include hydrocele, varicocele, and spermatocele, but these tend to not be painful. Bottom line: you should call your doctor and be seen as soon as possible. If you are having severe pain, fever, and/or vomiting, you should go to the emergency room.

Recommend: You have few conditions that definitely require doctors evaluation. Swelling of the knee and thigh lump need as minimum XRay. Please make appointment ASAP.

Lump in (not on)lower right leg beneath tender light bruise. Can very light bruises cause a lump underneath IN the body, not exterior? This normal?

Thrombosed vein?: You might be describing a bruise (blood leak) around a throbosed (obliterated) deep vein, especially if you have varicose veins or other bruises on your legs

I have a lump on my right leg at the side just above my knee. It causes me some disconfort when I have been on my feet for a few hours (im a waitress)?

I have a lump on my right leg at the side just above my knee. It causes me some disconfort when I have been on my feet for a few hours (im a waitress)?

Not urgent: There are many causes for knee pain. I suspect this may be a bursitis if it's tender, or joint swelling if not. I would try some physical therapy for now, unless you have a history of cancer (personal or family) or experience other symptoms like chills, fevers, etc. If concerned would see a family doc for quick screen, or physiatrist or orthopedic doc for definitive answer

I have a painless and moveable pea size lump on the very bottom, front and under skin of right leg.

Possible: Ganglion, but, since I can't see it, I would recommend you have it checked out to make sure the "lump" is indeed a benign lesion.

I had 1 large painful lump in lower right leg starting a wewk ago now another has formed. They are about the size of a plum cut in half. It even hurts?

I had 1 large painful lump in lower right leg starting a wewk ago now another has formed. They are about the size of a plum cut in half. It even hurts?

Lump in leg: Tash. The differential diagnosis of these 2 lumps appearing is quite large. If they appeared spontaneously and show no signs of acute inflammation, they could be benign lipomas depending on their position or something more serious depending on appearance. This is something I would bring to your doctor to see and evaluate. Thanks

See doctor: Possible represents something benign like a lipoma or a muscle herniation. It may represent some form of a tumor. Get it checked out and it may require an MRI to see what is is if ther e is any doubt.

There: There are multiple conditions that could cause swelling, such as a lipoma (benign fatty tissue) or a synovial cyst (a cyst from the knee joint), or other causes. If a patient started having pain in the area or increased swelling then seeing their primary care doctor for an evaluation would be reasonable.

Painful lump under my skin in my leg. No mark r bruse. Its on my tigh and near my pubic area on my right leg what could this be?

Painful lump under my skin in my leg. No mark r bruse. Its on my tigh and near my pubic area on my right leg what could this be?

Could be: A lot of things. Hard to say without being able to touch, feel and see it. It could be a swollen lymph node associated with what looks like an infection you are being treated for, it could be a fatty tumor, a clogged follicle under the skin. If it doesn't go away a week or so after you finish the ciprofloxacin, go back and get it checked out, sooner if it hurts.

When I put weight on my right leg, small lumps appear on a couple veins, and then go away when I'm not standing up. No pain or redness what is this?

When I put weight on my right leg, small lumps appear on a couple veins, and then go away when I'm not standing up. No pain or redness what is this?

Varicose Veins: You seem to be describing varicose veins which typically enlarge and bulge when standing and disappear and decompress when lying. Varicose veins are usually the result of malfunctioning valves in the saphenous system and, in someone your age, there may also be a genetic component. You should see a vein specialist for a venous evaluation.

Please help me` I am having severe pain in my upper right leg I have a lump seems like it is on the bone and it is getting to where I have to stand on one leg sometimes as if I am going to start hopping to take a little of the pain away. It is now in the

If: If you are in unbearable pain you must seek medical attention right away. If you are unable to see your doctor then you should present to an urgent care or emergency room. This "lump" on your leg could be an abscess (bacterial infection), tumor, lipoma (fatty mass), muscle spasm, etc. It is very difficult to say with the limited information in your post, and honestly a doctor needs to examine you. Best of luck.

I could be...: It could be a pilonidal cyst or even an abscess which could definitely be very painful. If this is the case you need to see your doctor in order to take a look at it and drain it as needed and possibly prescribe antibiotics.

I have a relatively hard lump on the inside of my right leg on the calf muscle. What could it be?

I have a relatively hard lump on the inside of my right leg on the calf muscle. What could it be?

Hard lump: Limited information makes this question difficult. If lump is small and near surface it could be phlebolith which is hardened or calcified vein. If deeper in muscle could be cyst or muscle mass. If you have history of injury then it could be an area of localized muscle spasm or tearing. If this persists you should seek a full examination.

Small lump on tibailis anterior muscle. I play competitive basketball. Only appears when I step with that leg (right leg). Disapears when leg is lifted.

Small lump on tibailis anterior muscle. I play competitive basketball. Only appears when I step with that leg (right leg). Disapears when leg is lifted.

Muscle Hernia: Most muscle hernias occur in the lower leg & affect the tibialis anterior muscle. Swelling appears or enlarges when the affected muscle is contracted & disappears or shrinks during muscle relaxation. Most muscle hernias are treated by reassurance since they are asymptomatic and don't affect function. A few painful hernias need surgery. Ultrasound is diagnostic and can exclude muscle tear or tumor.
