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 in top of my leg.

Lump in top of my leg.

What's your question: "lump in top of [my] leg" could be due to many things. If you're describing groin area where thigh joints pelvis, this might be a hernia or swollen lymph node (gland). Hematoma or bleeding could do this. Infection, too, even abscess, if red & painful. Severely broken bone but I think you'd have a pretty good idea of that. Hives? But those are temporary & itchy. Pain? Go see your family doc. ...Read more

Hi Doctor, I have a soft large lump, at inside of top of my leg. I am Male 74 years of age. Can you please advise? Regards, Bob Masson.

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. If it has been there for years and unchanged, then that would be more reassuring. I would think you would be best served by having a physician take a look at it, ...Read more

Why did my mosquito bite turn into a hard lump under the skin on the top of my leg?

Why did my mosquito bite turn into a hard lump under the skin on the top of my leg?

Not sure: An extreme allergic response could cause a large welt, and it could last a couple of days. If this is very old, though, it is possible it wasn't a mosquito but some other insect and it left a stinger inside you. If painful, it could be infected. You might want to have it examined to see if there is pus that needs to be released. Meanwhile, apply warm compresses for 15 mins 4x daily. ...Read more

Hives are usually itchy, may come from an allergy to a med or food or body reaction to recent illness. Treat with oral Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) etc. Fifth disease not itchy. ...Read more

Got this red lump with a tiny lump next to it on the top of left leg and near bladder scared it might be genital warts?

Got this red lump with a tiny lump next to it on the top of left leg and near bladder scared it might be genital warts?

Probably not a wart: First, a "red lump" doesn't sound like a wart. Second, as the name implies, usually they occur on the genitals (mainly the penis in men). A wart could occur at the top of the leg, but quite unusual. Third, only one wart would be unusual. Generally several of them show up at once. See a doctor if you remain concerned about it. Also ask the doctor about getting the HPV vaccine. ...Read more
