When we say : Lesions it is different than adhesions which is scare tissue. A lesion is a general term, usually for nodes of malignancy, low probability here. Who said you had "lesions?" if someone where to think they found cancer, they would have followed up. I do not think your leg pain related to pelvic organs. Standing a lot? Type of shoes? Start in foot and work up or go down back of leg? Sleeping? ...Read more

If no regular doctor, then a primary care clinic that takes care of kids will do. If a parent is able to give a very detailed description of the lesions and how they got there, then a virtual consultation with live video may be done on HealthTap PRIME. ...Read more

Lesions on leg and foot,start out dark spots then scab over and throb deeply. Dermatologist did biopsy,said could be furunculosis.What is that?

Skin abscesses: Furunculosis is the condition where small skin abscess (looking like pimples or boils) erupt over the skin. Usually these spontaneously drain before the next batch erupt. That being said, the scabbing & throbbing don't seem consistent with furunculosis. However, it's difficult to tell sometimes. The biopsy report should be definitive. Talk to ur dermatologist & good luck. Thanx for using HealthTap ...Read more
