Painful Lump In Lower Leg
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

Lumps and Bumps: Hi, sorry you are not feeling 100%. Bumps or lumps on people always cause alarm, but seldom are harmful.

Many times it is fat cells, (lipoma) which is a benign, soft , lump under the skin. See your doctor soon for exam. Take care, and good luck! ...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?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have dents on my lower leg. When I stretch my leg and bend over to touch my toes, something bulges out and forms a lumps. Fascia defects? Soccer?
Aboligothalomatubro!: I have the same thing and it's a lethal terminal Aboligothalomatubro tumor. JUST KIDDING! But I do have the same thing. You are correct, most probably a defect in the fascia and the muscle bulges out a little. Shouldn't be a big deal unless it bothers you. It can be surgically corrected but has never seemed worth it to me and I'm three times older than you and still doing lots of sports, etc. ...Read more
