I am responding to the man who had the hard lump on his leg near his ankle. I was wondering what happened after his doctor appointment. I have one also and my doctor is sending me to a specialist on 9-22. Hope it was good news. I will let you know my results too. Have a great day.
I, too, would be interested to hear the results of both of your doctor visits. I have a lump that formed on my lower leg after a rollerblading accident in which my leg hit a metal bar. It has been almost two weeks since the accident, and the bruising has mostly subsided, but I noticed the lump a few days ago.
I have an appointment 9-22-05 with a specialist. I will post results. They may take a biopsy.
FYI -- I saw an internist who said that the lump was simply a temporary reaction to the trauma (a build-up of scar tissue), and that it would dissipate over time -- within 6 to 8 weeks -- nothing to worry about.
Of course, no two cases are the same, so I'm not suggesting that anyone take something like this lightly. See your doctor!
I had an MRI and Xray and they found nothing. I was told to keep and eye on it and not to worry.
