Lumps and bumps: You are an 18 year old female with a painful bump, please see your doctor. Unless there has been direct trauma to explain this I have a high suspicion and concern. This must be worked up. Orthopaedics has a protocol based on your age and location of bump. This is not to be ignored. ...Read more

I have tiny clusters of bumps on both shins that itch (slightly red), and also small bumps that are spread across my inner thigh (don't itch/very red)?

New itchy rash: Any new itchy rash can be due to a new medicine, soap, detergent or skin care product. Those are the most likely culprits. Stop any new products. Call your doc if you have started a new medicine and it is giving you a rash. If it does not resolve in 2-3 days when stopping the new product, see MD. ...Read more

What can cause a small bump on my shin that aches at night?

What can cause a small bump on my shin that aches at night?

Orthopaedics consult: If you have significant night pain, an osteoid osteoma comes to mind. However, the best answer is to refer you to an orthopaedic surgeon for a full history and exam. Imaging such as x-rays helps in the diagnosis of such issues. Have you had any trauma to your shin? Playing sports? Your physician will be able to look at your leg in person and give expert advice. Good luck. ...Read more

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

Can a small bump that feels like it's in the vein running down the shin be blood clot? Feeling warmth and a bit of tingling in toes periodically

Can a small bump that feels like it's in the vein running down the shin be blood clot? Feeling warmth and a bit of tingling in toes periodically

Surface cord: The bump you feel could be a clot within a superficial vessel. These may cause pain and some redness, but rarely are the source of emboli to other organs. As a marker of a potential clotting disorder, it might bear evaluation to be sure there is no risk of deep vessel clots or a systemic disease that is creating the susceptibility. ...Read more

Lump on skin: Hard to know exactly without seeing it, but possibly it's an ingrown hair, or a lipoma (small collection of fat). You cannot see a blood clot on the surface of the skin, so don't worry about that. If it doesn't hurt, and it's not red or inflamed, you can keep an eye on it. If it gets worse or becomes painful, have it checked out. ...Read more

I have 3 bumps on the back of my leg that at first glance look like bug bites but up close there are lots of tiny little bumps in each big bump?

See doctor: If the problem persists. It is often difficult to tell what might have caused these bumps even with a direct look and nearly impossible with just a vague description. If these bumps don't hurt or itch, just watch it for a few days. If these lesions persist for more than a couple of weeks or get worse, see your doctor ...Read more

I have this some kind of muscel bump in my upper left leg muscel, its not hurt, sometime it get big, sometime it get small, I have it for around 6 month?

Get it checked: Do not ignore any bump that shows any growth. It may flucctuate in size but the fact is if it is new (was not there last year), then it should be examined by your doctor and an imaging study (like ultrasound/ct scan or mri) be done to find out about its nature. A biopsy may be needed if it is suspicious for a muscle tumor (sarcoma). ...Read more

My younger cousin is three and he have these small white bumps on his leg and back. What are they and is it possible to treat them at home?

Many causes.......: It will be very hard to diagnose a skin condition just hearing one sentence. Needs #1. History, e.g. How long, close contact with similar condition, swimming in pool, fever, itch, drainage, etc. #2. Detail exam. Of size, shape, color, texture, central dimple, cheesy, greasy material inside, etc. Etc. Tell parents to take your cousin to his pediatrician. Thx. For your concern for the cousin. ...Read more

I don't either: Bumps and lesions are very hard, if not impossible to diagnose over the computer. If the bump does not go away on its own in the next few days, than a physical exam by a health care provider would help determine what the bump might be and how to treat it. Good luck. ...Read more
