lumps on lower leg
I got a lump on my upper right leg a while back ago, and i didnt really think anything of it, and it ended up dissapearing. Then a little while after i obtained another lump just like the last one but on my lower left leg this time, right above my ankle. The bumps never hurt, caused any problems with my legs, no weakness or anything, i just leave em alone. Plus i cannot see a docter anytime soon. anyone have a clue? im mainly concerned with how it looks, cause i'v never had any other problems with the lump.

Hi

Lumps on the body which does not seem to enlarge or cause discomfort may be lipomas or ganglion cyst. Lipomas may be doughy and movable in character. They may involve areas of the body which have great amount of fat. The lipomas may be painful or a bit tender when they enlarge. In this case, they may need to be surgically removed. Ganglion cysts on the other hand are "are lumps that may present as firm, spongy swelling in the wrist on the top of the joint bones or the sheath surrounding a tendon. They are more common in women with 70% occurring in people between the ages of 20-40. The cause of ganglion cysts is not known although damage to the joint has been suggested as well as a problem with the joint capsule or tendon sheath which causes the joint tissues to bulge out."

Have this assessed by your internist. This does not sound serious. Just be careful not to injure the area.

Do you have any other associated signs and symptoms?
