Avatar m tn I have a large lump above my right ankle bone, it hurts to press down on it but doesnt hurt any other time. This is an issue for me as i am a figure skater and my boots press on it. do i need infrared to get rid of? is this tendonitis?
Avatar n tn I have a small lump just above my ankle on my left foot on the outside under the skin. If I bend over it feels as if a string is pulling it tight and the pain only at a certain angle is almost unbearable. There is no sign of bruise or bite and it gets much worse after I have been walking or try walking up stairs. It feels like it is radiating up my leg in to my calf and knee area and up into my thigh area on the outside only and all under the skin.
Avatar f tn My legs have been swollen from the knee's down for a little while, maybe a month. I also have a lump that seems like a vein jetting out of the outside of my leg above the ankle. It isn't discolored, and is soft to touch. I watch my diet very closely because I have a recurring SIBO infection, but I have noticed a little weight gain.
Avatar f tn Possibly the lump is a bursa sac. I sprained my ankle in May and got a puffy, spongy lump under the ankle bone. I saw an orthopod and started physical therapy.
280234 tn?1532989849 I found a small lump about 1 cm. in diameter under my ankle bone a few months ago. So I seen an orthopedic surgeon about it. She did an x-ray and said it was a peroneal tuberosity or possible ganglion cyst. She said the x-ray didn't show calcification. She did not biopsy it or order an MRI, & sent me home. She said nothing to worry about. I got a second opinion from a podiatrist.
Avatar f tn Suggestions please - I have a lump / bump on either life of my legs above my ankles. I speed skate - the boots are tight and hard. When I don’t skate it is fine - when I do the pressure is sore on the lumps. I haven’t skated for 2 weeks and the bumps are still there. It looks like I have 2 ankle bones. Thanks so much!
Avatar f tn It was very swollen and bruised in the front of the leg, just above the ankle. The swelling went down somewhat but there is a large, hard lump in the area now. It was only hurting when I touched it, but now although it doesn't hurt when I'm walking around during the day, at night the entire ankle has been painful, whether I'm sitting or walking. Three years ago I broke that ankle in three places including the lower portion of my tibia and fibula.
Avatar n tn I have a lump approx. 2 inches up from my ankle on each leg. They are on the lateral sides of the front of my legs, and they are not painful during the normal course of the day. However, when I run or play soccer, they swell to become quite noticeable, and it becomes painful to stretch the anterior tibial musculature. After exercise, they lumps feel somewhat sore but return to their almost unnoticeable size. The lumps themselves are somewhat firm, like a ripe banana.
Avatar n tn Hi, I play sports and i noticed i have a lump on the back of my ankle above my heel its been hurting for about 2 weeks not sure if i should go to the doctor or not what should i do?
Avatar f tn My daughter, 14, has a knot on the outside of her ankle just above the knobby bone and on the top of her foot. She hurt these two areas at separate times while running. She is a softball player and runs track. We had both areas x-rayed and the x-rays did not show a fracture in either area. We have applied ice and heat and also given her anti-inflamatory medicine for 8 weeks. She tried jogging again and it is hurting again and seems to be worse. I have made an appointment with a podiatrist.
Avatar n tn i have a lump/cysist right above my ankle that is very painful do i see a foot or vascular doctor?
Avatar n tn About a week ago I noticed a very sore spot on my ankle- front of leg about 2 inches above crease where the leg meets the foot. The skin over the area is slightly red- lump is not big enough to be visible but you can tell where the spot is b/c of the redness. When I feel around and press down there is a small lump that is moveable, soft, a little smaller than a pea and tender. Definitely below the skin- perhaps in the fat layer.

Avatar n tn I have a marble size lump on the back of my leg just above the ankle on my archilles tendon area, my Doc says I should not walk or exercise and rest it as my archilles tendon may snap, she said it could be a cyst. She also said not to wear any footwear that presses on it, which is pretty much everything apart from thongs.I have done what she said for a week but there is no difference and I am afraid it will snap!
Avatar m tn My wife was diagnosed with stage IIa melanoma on her right ankle a year ago which turned out fine and negative sentinel node biopsy. Since then we had undergone fertility treatments and now she is pregnant naturally and about to deliver a healthy baby girl,.at about 8 months pregnant she noticed a hard but slightly movable nodule the sise of a lima bean in her left breast which she said does not hurt. We went for an ultrasound at the St.
1646836 tn?1301434173 I had a lump just above my right ankle for several years. For along time the only time I knew it was there was putting my socks on. 9 months ago it started to feel warmer and grew a very small amount. It was 1.5" round and about 3/8" tall. It was filled with what felt like fatty substance so I went to the ER. It was diagnosed as a "sebaceous cyst". They lanced the mass and squeezed it like a zit. The substance that came out was "keratin".
Avatar f tn I have a lump in my lower leg its on the side just above my ankle, I have had it checked out and the doctor that seen me just said it was tissue, but now i have burning in my leg and and one of my veins just above the lump as risen on my leg and it is now giving my terrible pain. I am flying abroad in the next two weeks and im am now really worrying about this lump because i have a toothache feeling in my leg and burning. Can anyone relate to this or has anyone heard about something like this?
Avatar f tn I got hit 2 years ago by a softball just above the inside of my ankle and the inside of my foot turned purple (along with the ankle). Gravity causes the blood to pool downward, making a pretty purple bruise. The area I was actually hit turned hard, and to this day is still hard...almost like it formed some scar tissue underneath.
Avatar n tn i have a very similar lump on my shin right leg, seems to be 6 inch above ankle and slightly to the right of shin bone like you mentioned. i dont recall ever hitting or bruising it to cause this, also it is somewhat painful there is no indication of irritation or bug bite or bruise but when i rub it it feels like it is filled with liquid or some sort.
Avatar n tn Hi i was wondering if anyone can help me, I have had a lump in my lower left leg for 2 years now every now and then it swells up and gives me pain its in the left leg and its about 3 inches above the ankle in a straight line it gets really painful gives me pain in the the bottom of the foot and in the ankle and also this might sound strange but it sometimes feels as if someone is dripping cold water down my leg, does anyone know what this could be. Thank you very much.
Avatar n tn Immediately, my leg began to swell and the spot where I was hit turned a little red. It is located about four inches above my ankle on the inside of my leg. I put some ice on my leg and propped it up on a chair. My leg was a little sore for the next two days, but it is not difficult to walk or run. Then I noticed that blood was pooling at the bottom of my foot.
Avatar n tn It does move around, feels a bit like a fatty lump, I've also noticed another one just above it too. I've booked an appointment with my GP, the next available one is June 10th (3 half weeks away)!!! Obviously I wanted a female doctor. I'm constantly worrying. I haven't told anyone, my sister is due a baby anyday so I don't want to worry my mum or anyone. I feel sick everyday cos I'm worrying so much, I've convinced myself it's cancer. As soon as I find out what it is I will let you all know.
Avatar f tn (No injuries, no trauma).The lump does not hurt but my foot aches and it travels up to my ankle and almost up to my hip.I couldnt sleep last night because of the dull ache and cramps. I have tried to make an appointment with my Dr. However I cant get in utill Febuary. Should I be concerned that I will not be able to have it looked at untill Feb?
Avatar n tn I have had a lump under the skin right above my left outer ankle with a red spot and also it causes pain and swelling when I don't have it elevated. I have had an x-ray, blood work and an MRI and all they found was tissue swelling. I was referred to a dermatologist who believes it may be the result of some virus I came in contact with. I have had it for over a month. I have not been sick with a cold or anything else. I have not run a fever. The lump or area of the ankle are not warm to touch.
