The vast majority are not cancer but simply unusual growths like fatty tumors, cysts, skin tags, moles, etc. Most cause no symptoms and can be watched. If they cause symptoms or change colors, bleed, bruise or hurt, then see your doctor. ...Read more

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?

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

My baby has just her second lot of needles 4days ago and now has a lump on her leg. Is this normal? 

Little lumps are ok: Young babies don't have much leg muscle yet. Sometimes after a shot, there will be a lump in the leg muscle for a few days to a couple of weeks. If the lump is big (more than 1 inch wide), seems to hurt a lot, is warm and reddened, or is causing the baby to fuss a lot, a return trip to the doctor for a re-check is recommended. Getting more than one shot in each leg may cause more symptoms. ...Read more

Get checked: Sounds like an infected sebaceous cyst or a boil, which is not related to his having an affair, but your description is lacking a bit of detail and it could be an STI as well. Better to be certain and see an MD for an exam. ...Read more

I have this small lump on my leg. It's hard and feels almost like a little ball inside my skin. It doesn't hurt at all. Just curious as what it is.

Many benign tumors: There are many benign growths in the skin and under the skin. In general, if a lump has been there for many years and is not changing it is not dangerous. If a lump is growing it should be evaluated. Some common lumps and bumps that are benign are lipomas and benign cysts. If you have any concerns you can have it evaluated, and possibly removed and biopsied for confirmation. ...Read more
