Soft Lump On 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

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
I just recently started having a sharp stabbing pain in my left calf. The pain lasts for a few seconds and now there's a lump what could it be?
Muscle pull: We're always concerned with blood clots when we see calf pain, but this does not sound like one since you dont mention redness, swelling or tenderness. My best guess given the supplied info is either a pulled or partially torn gastrocnemius (resulting in a palpable lump) or possibly a soft tissue mass giving you nerve pain. "lumps" should never b ignored. See your doctor and have it checked. ...Read more

Sensitive painful hard lump on my left leg just below my knee on the left side of my calf... Any ideas of what it could be?
Can be anything!: Hard painful lumps and bumps need to be evaluated by your PCP, or dermatologist for further evaluation. Depending if there's an additional red ring around it, or if it's nodular, or if it has any other associate findings will determine what it could be. So a physical examination needs to be done for definitive diagnosis. ...Read more
