Small bump under skin near shin bone, dull pain in area, no swelling or redness. Causes?

I have a small bump deep under the skin in my left leg, near the shin bone. Yesterday I had a dull ache in the area, today and the days leading up are fine. You can feel it if you press the area but other than that, you can t see it nor would you have any indication it was there (no swelling , redness, bruising, etc.). I didn t even notice it except for the minor pain that accompanied it yesterday, which led me to press the area to figure out what was going on. Any thoughts?

Thanks for writing to us.

From description , this lump over your shin most probably formed due to haematoma formation which might get fibrosed or calcified.

It will take few weeks to months to get disappear.

I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination of swelling. You may get the X-ray of the area affected under his/her guidance.

Meanwhile give hot fomatation over it, You can take Tablet Motrin 1 tablet with food as and when required (upto 4 tablets daily).

Wishing you good health...
