I have a medium to small lump right above the left side of my ankle on my left leg. It is not painful at all. Any ideas of what it is?

I have a medium: It could be a cyst which is filled with fluid and can happen after an injury or almost jello type tissue if you have had it for a while or a lipoma, that consists of fatty tissue , both cause no problems. However, if the lump is getting bigger or is not going away, best to see a podiatrist or a surgeon , get an ultrasound and/or an MRI to find exactly what it is. ...Read more

Lump Science.: Although it is possible for the heel pain and lump presence to be related , it is more than likely not so probable. Lumps need to be defined and appreciated in a more definable manner.

I have a hard lump on my stomach, ankle, and upper leg that is no bigger than a pea what should I do?

Size doesn't : Matter, at least not here. Lumps, need to be investigated. The fact you have three in different anatomical regions, just means you have three reasons to go see a dermatologist and have them looked at. ...Read more

I have a lump on my ankle that I started noticing 3 months ago. Does not hurt and feels hard. Seems to align with the tendon. Thoughts? I have an appointment scheduled in five days with a orthopedic surgeon.

I have a nickel sized lump on the back of my ankle It began with what looked like a bug bite now its a hard lump I've had it for 1.5 weeks What is it?

Does it itch?: It could still be a bug bite. Certain flies like the deer fly and others can leave a pretty good welt that can linger for weeks. If it becomes painful, warm to touch or develops fluid in it then it is time to get it looked at to ensure no infection. ...Read more
