Lump On Shin Symptoms
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a rock hard lump on shin about halfway down my leg. Sort of feels attached to bone. What could cause this?
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

Can you get sarcomas in the shin area of leg? If so what are the symptoms? I have a non painful lump that won't go away. But it's not getting bigger
Yes, but rare: Your concern will likely only be alleviated after you've seen a physician, had an x-ray and been given answers as to the cause of this lump. Even without seeing you, I would say that a sarcoma would be an extremely unlikely cause of this lump. Nodular areas in the shin are quite common and sometimes develop after minor trauma to the area. These can take months to resolve. It's time to see a doc! ...Read more
Many swollen neck lymphs. itchy eyes. Hard lumps started on collarbone(was painful now isn't), more painless ones formed in 3 months, rib cage, shin, back of neck few on chest. good blood work, blood counts, crp, clean chest x-ray. no other symptoms
Lymph glands: Generalized enlargement of lymph nodes are seen in infectious mononucleosis, malignant blood dyscrasias and other infections. I'm not sure that they would be found on the rib cage itself or on the shin bone. I recommend an evaluation by a hematologist or an infectious disease specialist. A lymph node biopsy as well as other tests may be advised by the specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
