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

Lump in leg: Tash. The differential diagnosis of these 2 lumps appearing is quite large. If they appeared spontaneously and show no signs of acute inflammation, they could be benign lipomas depending on their position or something more serious depending on appearance. This is something I would bring to your doctor to see and evaluate.thanks ...Read more

Could be : A lot of things. Hard to say without being able to touch, feel and see it. It could be a swollen lymph node associated with what looks like an infection you are being treated for, it could be a fatty tumor, a clogged follicle under the skin. If it doesn't go away a week or so after you finish the ciprofloxacin, go back and get it checked out, sooner if it hurts. ...Read more

Unusual: I do not expect a mosquito bite to be painful and wonder if your bite was from another bug such as spider. If it is still painful, see your doctor to make sure that the area has not been infected. ...Read more

Lump in lower right back for about 5 yrs. 3 yrs increasingly severe femoral nerve pain. Now losing muscle mass in right leg, pain when squatting?

Needs consultation: Recommend a neurological visit, and consider both imaging and EMG study. If your femoral nerve is involved, you can lose muscle bulk and strength over your thigh, and this can potentially be reversed. Not knowing the character of the "lump", would suggest at least a surgical consult also. ...Read more
