Hi.
Thanks for your query and the picture.

I would like to know a few more details:
- Since when have you got this lump?
- Was there any history of trauma?

I think I mentioned something to my doctor on my shin before but she wasn't concerned. I just noticed this a few days ago, it may be the same thing. it feels hard, immobile almost like bone but I don't feel it on my other lower leg. no pain from it

Painless, hard and immobile lump at the area you have mentioned needs to be examined by a Doctor.
This may be an old hematoma giving this appearance.

Okay thanks. I have a upcoming appointment with a dermatologist. Can they diagnose this or will I have to make another appointment?

thank you, should this be urgent? after reading about hematona I'm almost convinced that that is the likely diagnoses. my shins are subject to constant bruising from contact sports
