Painful Lump On Upper Legs 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
Have cellulitis...On IV meds for 4 days. Symptoms improving but have hard painful lump on leg in centre of affected area...Should I get checked again?
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

Had appendectomy 3 weeks ago. Now having upper outer thigh pain. Two painful lumps. Ultrasound was done. Doc said lipoma. Is sudden pain A symptom?
Here are some...: Which thigh do you have pain? How has it begun, evolved thus far? In a clinical profile 3 weeks after appendectomy, it is still reasonable to consider if such pain is procedure- or disease-related. Seeing lipoma in groins on ultrasound is common. So, ask and work withe the surgeon for individual detail timely. ...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 more

Hi, I have a decent sized squishy lump on the inside of my leg. Its quite painful and stings when touched. It feels abit like chafing?
Abscess, boil?: If you have a newly tender lump it could be a skin infecton: boil (aka abscess, furuncle, carbuncle). Don't squeeze it. Apply warm compresses. (heat on 30 minutes off an hour) 4 times or so a day. If it is as large as a walnut and squshy it might needed to be drained. Your doc or an UC can do this. If you have fever over 101, red streaks going up your leg, and it gets bigger rapidly, go to ER ...Read more

Lump in leg: Tash. The differential diagnosis of these 2 lumps appearing is quite large.

This is something I would bring to your doctor to see and evaluate. Thanks ...Read more
