Large egg size/shape lump very deep inside my left upper inside leg/thigh. No pain, but feels like I can move it around. Fatty tumor or what? Remove?

Check it out: Most likely fatty tumor or fibrous tumor, less likely possibly femoral hernia. See a general surgeon. Sounds like nothing serious but in general if we can't get a tissue sample, we are not 100% sure of what it is. Don't lose sleep over it but get it checked out. ...Read more

Lump on shin now larger, moves less freely. Examined a few months ago doctor said the lump is a cyst. This week a pain in bone and or muscle behind lump?

Yesterdays Cyst.: Sounds about right to me. The cyst of a few months ago is starting to thicken it's walls and firm up. It is taking up more space and starting to effect the surrounding tissues. Probably best to have it re-evaluated. Consider having it excised. ...Read more

How can I treat a painful lump on shin (tibia), due to direct impact?

How can I treat a painful lump on shin (tibia), due to direct impact?

Time: It is probably a bone contusion with a hematoma. You can initially try ice within 48 hours to reduce swelling. After about 5 days, you can switch to moist heat to try to increase blood flow to area to resorb hematoma quicker. If it hurts to bear weight, be seen to make sure it is not broken. If it gets red and hot, be seen as it can get infection in it. ...Read more

My bf has a lump on the inside crease of his leg near his groin, it's egg sized and aches whenever he's been active... Any advice as to what it is?

Go to hospital now: Your boyfriend needs to be examined by his family doc (gp in gb) to determine what's going on. The lump could be a swollen lymph node, abscess (pus pocket), or even an inguinal hernia. Each diagnosis requires different treatment so it's imperative that rather than have someone guess (w/o examination from across the pond) that he get examined by his local family doc. ...Read more

Periosteal hematoma: If you had some local blunt trauma to your shin, the periosteal coating that surrounds the bone ("hot dog casing") is injured. As it is very vascular, it will bleed and can bulge and create a lump or hematoma. If it does not subside over the course of days to weeks, you should be evaluated ...Read more

How long after my seven year old daughter hit her head hard enough to cause a goose egg can she go to sleep?

How long after my seven year old daughter hit her head hard enough to cause a goose egg can she go to sleep?

Depends on variables: Did she pass out or express confusion after the injury? Has she started vomiting repeatedly? If either I would have her seen. If neither, let her sleep on her normal schedule. Do not wake her but check her every few hours for change of status. Kids awaken to vomit and complain of headache if problems occur. ...Read more

8 mth old fell off bed (3ft high) I caught her body but her head still hit the floor. Has small goose egg on back of head. No puke. Should I be worried?

Monitor her: If your baby is acting ok, then you could watch her. If she fell onto hard wood or a stone surface, then it's more concerning. If it's a carpet floor, from that height, she should be ok. If she vomits, then you should call her pediatrician and get advice from him/her. ...Read more

Small like pea size?: Lymph nodes are located throughout the body ; generally noticeable in exposed areas like the back of the head & neck. They are usually pea sized at rest and enlarged when stimulated by bug bites, dermatitis, drainage or infection. If it is not tender there is no urgency on evaluating it but I would bring it up at your next visit. ...Read more
