Varies: When you do sustain a "bone bruise" it can affect the periosteum, which is the lining of the bone. This can result in extra bone formation and the lumps you are describing. I would not hesitate to be seen and possibly have some further studies. ...Read more
Is it possible to have a severe bone bruise of the tibia cause compartment syndrome in the lower thigh of the same leg.
Compartment syndrome: Is not likely to move up to the thigh from the lower leg. The fascia of the muscles of the legs and arms is so tight that it doesn't allow for expansion in the crushed muscle so the swelling leads to pain and damage to additional muscle and can result in loss of the limb in extreme cases. Have it checked in an emergency room...Special equipment to measure increase in pressure in the muscle. ...Read more

I had a small pointed bump on left side of left shin bone, and after going to a gym, there is another less than size of pea? First one had been there.
Most often contusion: Bumps that appear right over a bone are typically the result of trauma/contusion. Usually there is a leakage of fluid which results from trauma against the hard surface of the bone. Perhaps, this has extended, causing what seems to be another bump. I would apply ice to these and watch for any discoloration such as bruising. If they persist for a week or more, contact your doctor for evaluation ...Read more

If you knee is normal, the pain can come from injured muscle and fascia in your thigh/leg. The injured areas will be tender, and there will be at least one ropey cord of muscle with knots in it. This pain is called myofascial pain. Seek a massage therapist, physical therapist who can do dry needling, or an accupuncturiest.
