Lump in calf muscle

Common Questions and Answers about Lump in calf muscle


Avatar n tn Hello I noticed a lump on the outside of my left calf muscle a week ago. I can only see it if i kneel down. I also have been having a dull achy almost maybe burning in that calf which I noticed about 3-4 weeks ago. Thank you for any information you can provide.
Avatar n tn I have recently started excercising and have just noticed a lump/knot which is located below my calf muscle, It is soft on top but firmer when pressing in.It is pretty good in size. No bruising, no pain unless pressing on it. Slightly warm to touch at most. I have probably been over doing it at the gym. Possibly a pulled muscle? I didnt notice any sudden pain. I have had a lot of calf and lower leg pain, but I have done a lot of treadmill and elliptical.
Avatar f tn what is this lump in what appears to be my vein on my right calf (inner leg slightly lower section of calf muscle). It is very tender to touch and a bit painful when i walk. I dont remember hitting it on anything and it only just started to hurt today, which is why i noticed its appearance. should i be worried that it is a blood clot? if so what to i do to treat it?
Avatar m tn What could this be? Is this a tear in my calf muscle? what can I do to stop the aches and get rid of the knot or lump in my leg?

Avatar m tn The pain prompted me to examine my leg and that is when I noticed a lump at the bottom of my calf muscle and flexing only made it more noticeable. Two clinic visits, an ultrasound and one pcp later still no answers or guesses. The mass is getting larger. My pcp was supposed to view the u/s results that the clinic ordered, but I haven't heard from him. My left calf is noticeably bigger than my right. Ok, so now to my question. What type Doctor should I see?
Avatar f tn For the past 6 weeks I have been experiencing pain in the back of my knee and down my calf muscle in my right leg. If i rest either with my feet up or down, when I go to stand my leg from my knee to my foot is very stiff and sore. I am unable to kneel as it feels like a massive burst of pain behind the knee into my calf muscle as if i have severly sprained it. When standing, if i transfer any weight onto my right leg, i get pain from the back of the knee right down my calf.
Avatar n tn I have muscle spasm in or around the ribs on both sides (in the front under the breast and sometimes in the back at the same horizontal position), it feels like a ball rolling, in that it switches sides. It occurs even at night during sleep, painful enough to wake me. I only know that when I relax and stretch (the side where the knot is) using several positions I have to wait till it goes away, in many cases to have it return in other places described above.
Avatar n tn I came off a horse a week ago (Saturday) and ended up with a large contusion/hematoma in the right shin, not over the bone but to the left on the soft tissue. LARGE lump remains -- literally the size of an egg. Lots of discoloration and edema from knee into the ankle; old blood is pooling there. I saw a doc on Thursday; he did X rays to check for tibial fracture and did not feel aspiration was needed. However, the pain is not resolving and may be getting worse.
Avatar n tn If you went too far with the reps and are really knotted and in pain. I have read that a direct poke into the muscle should relax the muscle releasing the pressure. I have yet to find this "point" but if you over extend your body bending backwards. extending the abs releases the pressure instantly for a few seconds. until you make it to the treadmill. good luck.
Avatar n tn Noticed today that my five year old son has a soft lump on the back of his leg, at the top of his calf muscle. It is about 2 inches in length and 1 inch in width. The lump seems fluid filled, but is deep under his skin. What could this be?
Avatar m tn menstrual cramps; difficulty swallowing or a lump in the throat-especially provoked by eating sugar; photophobia, especially difficulty adjusting to oncoming bright headlights in the absence of eye disease; and loud noise sensitivity from stapedius muscle tension in the ear. Other symptoms and signs of magnesium deficiency and discuss laboratory testing for this common condition. Continuing with the symptoms of magnesium deficiency, the central nervous system is markedly affected.
Avatar n tn Athletic (though getting a little pudgier now that i'm married) I have been experiencing muscle twitching (fasciculations?) since early in this spring '06 (I think it began maybe in late February or sometime in March). The twitching initially began in my arms. My right forearm, and tricep and left tricep were the first that I noticed. There is a muscle apparently on the outside of the elbow, because that one has been there since the first time I noticed the twitching.
Avatar n tn Hi, As if you are looking down at your left leg, on the front right of the calf as you are looking at it, about 4 inches from the knee I have a hard lump. This lump is very very hard, and probably the size of a half a tictac. It is not round, and appears to have a flat side. When I put my fingers either side of it and 'roll it' between my fingers It feels like it 'crunches' inside the skin, like rolling a tiny lump of glass between cloth.
Avatar n tn If they are elevated (mine were but then dropped back to normal) by the time a muscle biopsy was suggested. I am seeking my third opinion in NY in two wks time and its 17mths since my acute symptoms. I hope that helps, and please don't give up, its miserable when you have no answers and are suffering. GL and maybe those are some new ideas to consider.
168348 tn?1379360675 I'm not too well versed but if ok with my kidney stones (cannot take some supplements bcz I create calcium oxalate stones) I am willing to take something to help with the muscle cramps I am getting. It proceeded into a full blown charlie-horse in the calf this morning ..... any thoughts? I'm game to try something o-t-c! All my minerals, vitamins, etc., were good when tested in November with the Endo .. this also included 24hr urine study done by Urologist and all was normal then.
Avatar m tn Emense pain in the ankel of the right leg too. 3. A swolen lump type growh is visible which is red in colour, as if its internal muscle wound. 4. Leg gets very heated up.

798555 tn?1292791151 My biggest problem in the last 5 years has been muscle pain. Mostly it's in my low back and hips. I do have 2 mild bulging discs L4-L5-S1 the area most of us get that problem. However, I know the pain from the discs when I overdo it, but I have daily stiffness/aches behind my hips up high around the sacum and I suppose near those bulges, but I get it around 3-5pm when I'm a bit more stressed maybe with afterschool homework and getting dinner ready,etc.

Avatar n tn I was reading all the post and seen that a warm cloth would help with the pain of the lump in my bikini area. As I read on further I decided to try the warm cloth, i added epson salts to the water and used the wash cloth as a compress. After I had finished reading the other post, I decided that I had held this long enough, when I took the cloth from the lump I noticed that there was a lot of brown puss coming from the lump.
Avatar f tn Four months after I noticed this tender area, I began having pain in my calf and foot. Gradually I have noticed a numbness feeling off and on in my calf and foot. Also, sometimes if my leg is in bent position, my leg will suddenly jerk or i'll feel like I need to jerk it. This all began with the tender spot in my upper thigh. I've discovered this tender spot is a lump (if I sit on the floor with my legs crossed I can actually feel it). It feels like a deep bruise, almost to the bone.
Avatar f tn So far, I have not had anything major happen, ie) seizures, or extreme dizziness,,, the only thing that I have had are, some stomach pain, finger,lip and cheek twitching, pain in my upper calf close to my knee, and two days of slight ankle pain. My left hand tremor appears to still be lessened alittle but its still there. My sinuses are still clogged up even though I had sinus surgery in Feb of this year, my nose is still numb and I still can't breath.
Avatar f tn In the shower a little over a week ago, I found a hard lump in my breast. It is in the soft tissue below my nipple. It is quite large. I will admit that I have not been the best at doing self exams, but to my knowledge it is new. I went to my family doctor, who sent me to get a mammogram. The results came back abnormal. There is a golf ball size solid mass in my breast. They told me it was suspicious.
Avatar n tn I had hernia surgery last year... and they used staples to close... last month I tore a muscle in my leg that would heal and had a large bump.. upon getting an x-ray I was told that I had a staple in my calf... I'm assuming that somehow a staple was left or drop in me and traveled down my leg... Now I can't find a surgeon who will remove it and it hurts like heck.
Avatar m tn When the foot is stretched I cant see the bump. I did not find it earlier. It must have developed in last few months. It surely was not there. Or at least it did not pained earlier. Even now it does not pain much. Occasionally and very slightly. But it pains (again not too much) when I fold my knee fully. So I avoid folding my left feet fully. I can walk and run well (though now a days I avoid running and do so carefully, not too fast). Also most of the time I use knee cap too.
Avatar m tn 2 months ago my right little toe started to twitch often.The twitch then started in my right calf and the muscle felt like I had over worked it like I have been down the gym and worked it very hard, where you get that trembly feeling. I then developed a feeling in the back of my throat like it was closing up or there was a lump in it. I went to see an ENT doctor who performed a scope and nothing was found.
Avatar n tn I doubt this is related, but I have some sort of muscle strain in my hip/groin area that is possible due to an intense backpacking trip in October. Any feedback appreciated. Guess I could consult dr. after Xmas if still going on . . . but it's vague and one of those deals like when your car won't act up for the mechanic.
