Painful Lump On Arm Or Leg Symptoms
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

Mom had a (painful) lump on her leg & now a lump on her arm. Urgent care says varicose veins (in 2 sites?) should she get 2nd opinion? Possibilities?
Varicose veins: This should be very easy to sort out with a physical exam & a vein ultrasound. If the MD at the urgent care suspects abnormal veins, then see a vascular surgeon for opinion (they are experts in varicose veins). The arm lump would be unlikely to be an abnormal vein (varicose veins don't form on the arm), but a quick exam & ultrasound should sort that out as well Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi, I have itchy lumps on my arm, leg and feet. They are about a small cherry. What do you think it is?
Lumps: These may be scattered hives caused by an allergy of some sort. Insect bites are possibilities although these lesions are usually smaller. Try to think of any precipitating factors like certain foods, medications,etc. Antihistamines like benadryl(causes drowsiness) or claritin(nondrowsy) give relief.

Hard lump on lower back size of a quarter under skin. Bad pulling in arms, shoulders, back, and legs. Feel most pain when I lie down for a while. ?
TimetoTakeYourLumps: Best to get it looked-at. An infection under the skin(an abscess,"boil") can be taken care of. And if it's some other kind of lump,it should be examined and a decision made as to what to do about it.The other problems are probably unrelated but can be figured-out at the same visit.
