I have a relatively hard lump on the inside of my right leg on the calf muscle. What could it be?

Hard lump: Limited information makes this question difficult. If lump is small and near surface it could be phlebolith which is hardened or calcified vein. If deeper in muscle could be cyst or muscle mass. If you have history of injury then it could be an area of localized muscle spasm or tearing. If this persists you should seek a full examination. ...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

Small lump on tibailis anterior muscle. I play competitive basketball. Only appears when I step with that leg (right leg). Disapears when leg is lifted.

Muscle Hernia: Most muscle hernias occur in the lower leg & affect the tibialis anterior muscle. Swelling appears or enlarges when the affected muscle is contracted & disappears or shrinks during muscle relaxation. Most muscle hernias are treated by reassurance since they are asymptomatic and don't affect function. A few painful hernias need surgery. Ultrasound is diagnostic and can exclude muscle tear or tumor. ...Read more

The back of my leg above the knee hurts and there's a lump that hurts when pressed. Also my calf muscle hurt months before this and had a hard lump?

Tendinitis/Myositis: You likely sustained a sprain or partial rupture of the Achilles' tendon with persistent symptoms if it was not medically approached with RICE. The gastrocnemius muscle is the only calf muscle that originates above the knee and the tenderness and nodularity characterize myofascial pain. A Velcro knee sleeve, ice and elevation, foam roller or foot massage, gel insoles and topical NSAID creams help! ...Read more

Not knowing the character of the "lump", would suggest at least a surgical consult also. ...Read more

Pain in leg lumps near shin bones. 36 weeks preg. Losing muscle mass and weight. Lumps movable. Docs not sure. Appeared suddenly. Lots of leg pain too.

Discuss with Doc: Lumps on you legs at 36 weeks of pregnancy could be either prominent fatty collections call lipoma or from prominent veins or varicosities. Elevation of your legs should help. Both can be palpated under the skin and appear mobile. Loss of muscle mass can be from lack of activity, if you you have been slowing down. The weight loss is more of a concern and would discuss this with your obstetrician. ...Read more

What happens when my muscle on the front side of the bottom half of my leg has become a bump and hurts?

What happens when my muscle on the front side of the bottom half of my leg has become a bump and hurts?

Muscle fascia hernia: Sounds like you may have a fascial hernia that allows the muscle to locally herniate through due to internal pressure. With activity, the muscle pressure increases and the visual bump enlarges as more muscle extrudes through the defect. Exercise induced exertional compartment syndrome may also lead to this injury pattern. Orthopaedci surgeon evaluation is indicated. ...Read more

What r symps of pulled calf muscle? Can it cause painful twitches? Normal? Other symp bump along lateral side of lower leg when I stand, like hernia

Strain: A strained muscle causes soreness and pain on use and takes a week or so to heal. Occasionally bumps in the lateral calf area are due to small herniations of fat tissue through the muscle. Varicose veins are another possibility. A physician would have to examine you to be sure. Muscle twitches are not commonly due to sprains and can occur spontaneously. Muscle cramps are commonly due to tight musc ...Read more
