Large visible swelling in this region could be due to a no of reasons. Get an X-ray of the area first to rule out any bony lesion. Then after further examination, we can determine the problem and treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hello, Was helping move some stuff out of a pickup bed, and a door corner hit my lower tibia on right leg. It cut into the skin a little, but was able to walk around and get back into the truck. It did hurt quite a bit, and later that evening, it was really swollen and purple/blue. Being an avid weight lifter (6 1 , 235 lbs, 14% bmi, 23yr old) and an extremely high tolerance for pain (sharp/dull), I didn t go see a doctor. Two days after I decided to take four days off and just kept my foot elevated with ice on it. Swelling went down quite a bit. This was about 5 weeks ago, and now there is a visible lump. It doesn t follow the curve of the left leg. It s located about 3 above the ankle. My only guess is it s some sort of blood collection that isn t going away for whatever reason. Also I think it s safe to rule out a fracture because I was still able to walk on it. Back to lifting weights as normal, and even seen improvement, but this lump is still there. How long does this usually take to go away? Thank you very much for reading this.
