I fell and hit my leg on the stairs lastweek and there a bruise and a huge lump that won't go away, should I be concerned?
Hematoma?: This could be a hematoma, which is essentially a black-and-blue mark that's a bit deeper under the skin. Whereas black-and-blue marks spread in two dimensions, a hematoma grows in three dimensions so can feel like a lump under the skin. If your leg is not diffusely swollen then a DVT is probably not a concern. Warm soaks to this area may help. ...Read more

Can you get sarcomas in the shin area of leg? If so what are the symptoms? I have a non painful lump that won't go away. But it's not getting bigger
Yes, but rare: Your concern will likely only be alleviated after you've seen a physician, had an x-ray and been given answers as to the cause of this lump. Even without seeing you, I would say that a sarcoma would be an extremely unlikely cause of this lump. Nodular areas in the shin are quite common and sometimes develop after minor trauma to the area. These can take months to resolve. It's time to see a doc! ...Read more

7 y.O. Has faint bruise on shin with firm lump beneath (hurts when pressed). If he hit it that hard, should bruise be more obvious? Cause for concern?
Bone Bruise: There is really not much protection of the shin from a direct blow. Since there is not much muscle coverage you won't see brusing as you would in the calf area. Watch the area for a few days and if it does not go down then have him see your pediatrician. Most bruises resolve. ...Read more
I hit my shin very hard and it bruised and got swollen right away. One month after I hit it, I discovered a lump where I hit it. It is kind of hurting and getting a litle bigger. What should I do?
Hematoma: Sometimes, after an injury to a bone there can be bleeding under the bone membrane (periosteum). The resultant hematoma will sometimes calcify and form a lump. As the blood breaks down, the hematoma can absorb water and enlarge. You should consider having it checked out by your doctor if it continues to bother you. ...Read more

Hit my shin bone 4 weeks ago, it's still swollen and bruised. There's a large lump. Tender to touch. Only gets sore if use it to much?
Bump is hematoma: The large lump is a common normal response to an injury over the tibia from blunt trauma. The bony lining or periosteum is very vascular and thus can bleed significantly leading to a local hematoma. The swelling should start to subside with rest, ice, decreased use and an ace wrap to provide compression and protection. ...Read more

I fell and hit my leg on the metal stairs while going up. This was about 4 weeks ago and there is a lump on my shine still. Its hard like a bone?
Hematoma residual: Likely the hit to the shin resulted in a hematoma, or collection of blood under the skin over the bone. These collections of blood clot up and heal but can leave scars, in the forms of lumps under the skin. Sometimes they can calcify. In most cases, the lump is inconsequential. In time with gentle deep circular massage, the lump can recess. ...Read more

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.

Possibly: It may still be there. The good news is that it usually doesn't cause a problem and can safely be left in place. Antibiotics may help reduce the risk of infection. It is unlikely to get infected, but if it does, it can usually be easily removed. If it starts getting more swollen, red or starts draining pus, see a doctor. ...Read more

One month before I was playing cricket a ball hit to my leg. Then a lump appeared there what should I do?
Leg injury: If it is just a lump with no pain then it is just a hematoma. If the swelling is in your knee/ankle joint and you have difficulty with movement, then this needs to be evaluated by a physician for any ligament injury. Overtime, this lump should get smaller, given that it persists for over a month, you need to have it examined by a physician to be certain it is nothing sinister. ...Read more

Hit my upper leg on edge of table very hard a month ago. Had a huge bruise and pain but it's gone. Now I touch & feel a hard lump under skin. Hematoma?
WeAllTakeOurLumps: Yes, it could be what remains of a hematoma under the skin. That lump could be there for a few months but the body absorbs most or all of it. Nothing dangerous.

But, if it starts growing or begins to hurt or the skin discolors, get it checked out. ...Read more
