It's: It's possible you've fractured your fibula, which is the thin bone on the outside of your lower leg. If you haven't seen your doctor about this problem yet, I would recommend that you do so. An x-ray would determine whether you have a fracture; if that study is normal, you can treat your "soft tissue injury" (hematoma, contusion, etc.) with alternating ice and heat packs, range of motion exercises, over-the-counter pain medications (acetaminophen, ibuprofen, naproxen), and rest.
Good luck! ...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.

I had a small pointed bump on left side of left shin bone, and after going to a gym, there is another less than size of pea? First one had been there.

I had a small pointed bump on left side of left shin bone, and after going to a gym, there is another less than size of pea? First one had been there.

Most often contusion: Bumps that appear right over a bone are typically the result of trauma/contusion. Usually there is a leakage of fluid which results from trauma against the hard surface of the bone. Perhaps, this has extended, causing what seems to be another bump. I would apply ice to these and watch for any discoloration such as bruising. If they persist for a week or more, contact your doctor for evaluation ...Read more
