Soft lump on the shin bone that feels like fluid, appears on exercising, gets numb on crossing legs. Suggestions?

I have a soft Lump on the right side of my shin bone. When I touch it it feels like fluid. It is not hard. It only appears when exercising or after walking for a while. It feels a little numb when I cross my legs. Been there for a while and has not changed in size. I also have a problem with my ankles where I have torn the ligaments. So there is a lot of scare tissue . I have had lymphatic problems in the past.

first - wishing u a happy new year
and welcome to our site

read your query
that is a very interesting question
and i appreciate your problem

i will try my best to answer your query
please do understand that some problem remains as
online texting cuts down history and examination
thereby reducing the effectivity
and increasing reliance on tests

this could be due to a collection of some fluid
i would suggest you get an x ray of the affected limb
and mri would be a better option considering your ligament status too
i think it is just a paraosteal fluid collection

i hope this helps you
inform the reports mentioned above
so i can be of help further
best of luck
