Sounds like: ruptured tendon, but you need to see a doctor to make sure that it is not thrombophlebitis, especially if you have risk factors such as birth control pills,smoking, protracted immobility, or recent surgery.

Keep an eye on it: I would not worry about it right now. But do check it once weekly and monitor its size. Unless it grows bigger over the next 1-2 months, it is unlikely to be a serious matter. I suspect it is a small clot of blood which should subside in a month or two. If it does not get smaller or if it grows bigger, get it checked by your doctor.. ...Read more

I have a small pea sized lump under the skin on my shin. It's soft, completely circular, and you can kind of move it not a lot though. What is this, do I need to see a doctor, and if so, what kind?

Maybe not: This may be a benign tumor called a lipoma, or a small scar-ball called a fibroma. If it is not growing and it is not painful, one can monitor these lumps and visit a physician if they grow, become painful, the skin changes color or consistency over the lump or it starts draining fluid. ...Read more

Just noticed a small pea size lump on my outer thigh seems painful when I rub and its seems to be right under the skin. could this be a clot

Not likely: Superficial clots form close to the skin, and are not a danger for embolism. Deep venous clots are deeper, generally larger and are a risk. Is more likely a cyst in formation. Try warm compress, and if it grows over sev days, might need Dr eval and antibiotics ...Read more

I found a lump on my 1 year old shin. Its pea sized hard but i can move it around under the skin.. the dr said it felt in the skin and to just observe?

Lumps and bumps: Pea sized bumps are more common in the neck or groin, but are seldom to worry about. Watching and waiting is a good plan. It could be removed by surgery, but little bumps often get better over a few months. A bump that is red, tender or growing should be brought to medical attention. ...Read more
