Painless Lump On My Left Calf
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

See physician: Should get this looked at soon. Painless lumps are usually not infections or other simple problems. Was this a lump that changed or was there nothing there 5 days ago? Could be a muscle hernia if it disappears when you lie down. In general, all hard painless lumps should be checked out to be sure that they are not abnormal tissue. ...Read more

I have a lump on my left inner calf.. It gets achy and lower leg swells alot. 2 ultrasounds ruled out DVT. Both legs and knees are extremely weak.
Sounds like next...: ...step may be either biopsy or further imaging like MRI/CTA. Could be something as benign as a lipoma (which are still not fun to have). Leg/knee weakness are probably a separate unrelated issue. Here's the deal with ultrasounds: they only image the *lower* leg vasculature. If you are still getting chronic LEFT leg swelling, it's time for pelvic vasculature imaging to r/o May-Thurner Syndrome. ...Read more

Just discovered a painful, small lump near the bottom of my left calf. No ins. Need advice. Only painful when touched. Not visible. Ideas?
Cyst: If it is not visible, then most likely it's not inflammatory, because those are red, hot, swollen, itchy. Ganglion cysts (cysts located on the tendons) are by far the most common cause of otherwise not painful lumps unless touched. They are smooth surfaced, firm, mobile. They are benign and sometimes may disappear, although, at times may grown and cause even more pain due to compression. ...Read more
