First noticed reasonably large, hard lump on lower leg after injury (gouge taken out of leg) 7 years later, it's still there. Could this be a problem?
Not necessarily: It's difficult to say based on the info you provided. As is the lump in the deep muscle, superficial skin or bone. If it's in the bone, it could be related to a bone callus. If its the deeper muscle, it could be myositis ossificans, which is a calcium deposit in the muscle after truama. Skin wise, that could be a hypertrophic amongst other things. Usually are only problems if create pain. ...Read more

Lump in leg: Tash. The differential diagnosis of these 2 lumps appearing is quite large.

I have just a large red lump on my leg, hard to the touch and very itchy, and very large. Swollen and red. Should I be alarmed?
Have it seen: It is difficult to diagnose issues with the skin without having them seen by a physician. As a "very large, swollen, red lump" is not normal on the leg it would be a good idea to have a physician look at it. The fact that the area itches would make me suspicious of possibly it starting out as an insect bite; however, a secondary infection requiring antibiotics is certainly possible. ...Read more

See yur doctor: That could be a benign lesion or something more serious. If it has been changing, bleeding, changing color or growing it is of greater concern.

I got a big dark bruise on leg with lighter colored lump in the middle. Hasn't improved in 4 days. No pain except when touching the lump. What to do?
"Normal bruising": It's likely that you bumped into something but didn't pay it any mind. The lump is probably a small area of bleeding (hematoma). This area will slowly resolve with the bluish color turning yellowish and then disappearing. No specific treatment is needed. This type of bruising is common in the lower extremities. If you have frequent development of bruises you should see your physician. ...Read more

Have lump on muscle behind knee no pain at all just happened to feel it the other day and been wondering why one leg is noticably larger then other?
Baker Cyst: If the "bump" is directly behind the knee and not associated with pain the most likely etiology is a "baker's cyst" or popliteal cyst. These are usually benign though at times can become quite large and become bothersome due to limitation they place on bending the knee. They can, though rarely, rupture and result in swelling and pain in the lower leg mimicing a deep vein thrombois (dvt). ...Read more

I got into a car accident. I have a large bruise on my leg that keeps getting bigger and had a hard lump under skin. Its been growing every day?
The bruise =bleeding: & if there is a collection of blood called hematoma, the discoloration always get bigger & many colors. The lump = a fibrosis of the clot, the body usually cleans them up. But it takes time. May get smaller & go away, or you are left with a permanent lump of undetermined size. Just be patient, there is no serious thing going to happen. It will just sit there. Ice @ first, after 3-4 days, heat. ...Read more
