I have a hard lump near the bone on my lower leg about half way between the knee and ankle. I discovered it putting on socks. It does not hurt and can be moved around under the skin. It is very hard, like bone. I researched bone spurs, but did not find any reference to spurs on that part of the body. Also, it does not seem to be attached to the bone. I am 58 years old and borderline for osteoporosis, but do not have it as yet. Is this a symptom of that? Do I need to see a doctor about this, since it is not painful? Please advise. Thank you.
