    Suggest treatment for a lump in the right leg and sensitivity to touch

Posted on Fri, 14 Jul 2017 in Lump
Question: This morning noticed a lump in lower area of right leg. Went on with the days activities.
This evening it is a 2 inch swollen area, with sensitivity when touched.
I take Eliquis, since my stroke in 2014. Since then, I've had an ablation Oct. 2016, which lowered my afib to zero. Only other medication taken now is Diltiazem (Cardizem)
