Swollen Lump On Fibula
I removed my own cast about a week ago because it got wet, been walking on my ankle since but more it's swollen and has minor pain. Fibula is it ok?
Not healed: If you removed you cast on your own without the guidance and recommendation of your physician, it was probably not time for the cast to be removed. If you had a cast for a fibula, you were likely expected to be non weightbearing. In particular if you have a fracture. Do not discontinue medical treatment without seeing the treating physician first. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I sprained my ankle 3 months ago, still swollen and it is tender around my talar dome/fibula. Is it a possible ligament tear?
I have a non-displaced fractured Fibula. On crutches & in air boot. This happened 12 days ago. The ankle & foot still very swollen. Is this normal?
Yes: Doris, It will take 6-8 weeks for the fibula to heal. Swelling should gradually diminish. To help, think RICE: Rest, Ice (my favorite ice is frozen peas), compress, elevate. This should help keep the swelling to a minimum. If the pain is too severe, or you develop numbness or inability to move the foot, please see your doctor. Hope this helps! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

If the lump is deep beneath the skin there could be something swelling in the abdominal wall (like a hernia). Surface lesions can also get inflamed. ...Read more
