Lump In Left Calf Symptoms
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

Sensitive painful hard lump on my left leg just below my knee on the left side of my calf... Any ideas of what it could be?
Can be anything!: Hard painful lumps and bumps need to be evaluated by your PCP, or dermatologist for further evaluation. Depending if there's an additional red ring around it, or if it's nodular, or if it has any other associate findings will determine what it could be. So a physical examination needs to be done for definitive diagnosis. ...Read more
