Pinkish lump on the hamstring. No STD. Had pinworm infestation in the past. What could it be?

28 yr old, Caucasian, Straight, male; 5 7 , 159 lbs. On my hamstring , I have a PINKISH LUMP about the size of a pea around and SORT of cylindrical about 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch high. NO SEX; so that rules out an S.T.D. and I eat extremely healthy with PRETTY MUCH NO REFINED SUGAR. Although, I do eat a lot of fruits and veggies, RAW. RAW foods are better for You, according to the research I ve done on the internet over the past ~8 yrs. I HAVE had pin worms in the past (itchy anus ), but gotten rid of them using natural remedies; RAW garlic and grapefruit seed extract. I have eaten pretty much RAW clams before too. It s NOT a pimple , that I am aware of and it s NOT a wart . Could You please tell me what it is? Again, it s PINKISH and the same color throughout. Thanks a TON! John

1. a knee sprain can result in tearing tiny blood vessels and bruising, both in the back of the knee and down the front.
2. are you able to bear weight on ankle or not? any associated numbness/pain?
3. Consider getting assessed by an Orthopedic surgeon for Examination, if the purple area continues to spread, who might ask for Color Doppler to rule out DVT.

PS: generally there isn't any association between pin worm and pinkish lump.
