Lump above the right ankle, gets bigger and harder while walking, feel tired quickly. Suggestion?

i have a dime sized lump above my right ankle, i stated exercising about 3 weeks ago and the first 2 weeks it didnt bother me at all, i go on about a 4 mile walk and do p90x at night, these last 3 days after about a mile the muscle on the outside of my right leg from the ankle to the knee gets really fatigued and tired very quickly, i dont know what this is, before i walk the lump is smaller and kinda squishy but after i walk for a mile now it gets a little bigger and gets harder, very frustrating seeing as how now i cant do my exercises. Please help

Welcome to the forum.

The pain, lump and fatiguness you have described are more likely to be symptoms of muscles strain
To get relief from the pain and for quick healing:
1. Do hot fomatation at the site.
2. Apply local anti-inflammatory gel 2-3 times a day.
3. Take anti-inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen to reduce pain and local swelling or inflammation.
4. Do not try to do exercise that involve painful muscles. Give proper time for the injury to heal

I hope this is helpful to you.
