Shin hurt, bruised. Feel tube like tissue on skin surface, shin bone missing. Possible cause?
Hey, I received a very hard tackle on my shin during a football match. After the game it bruised and know there is a pocket of fluid where I was kicked and I can feel a thick tube like length of tissue close to the surface of my skin next to my shin bone. It also feels like there is a sizeable part of my shin bone missing. However there is no pain? Any ideas?
Hi, It seems that you might be having soft tissue damage while having injury. Consult your doctor and go for stitches if require. Go for x-ray shin to rule out any bone damage. Go for antibiotic and anti-inflammatory medicines. Ok and take care.
