I have a lump on the back of my calf,

I have a lump on the back of my calf, a little larger than a dime,with a dark bruise spreading out around it. I did not hit my leg in that area and I didn’t see puncture marks, like from a spider. This happened once before on my stomach. The lump and bruising went away on their own. What might cause this?

I had a sudden itching sensation in back of calf and when I reached down to scratch it I felt large golf ball sized hard lump that was tender to touch so I looked and have a large dark bruise but did not bump, hit or receive any injuries to the area. What could cause this?

I had a lump on the back of my calf for about 3 days and there was a distinct line on the back of my calf above the lump as well that seemed to go away. But then it just reappeared tonight and at the same time a small lump on my wrist appeared tonight what is this?

I have a pea size lump on the back of my calf. Sort of in the muscle fibers. It s about 2 inches above my Achilles tendon. I limp when I walk because obviously the muscle flexes and loosens. I can feel one developing on the other leg in the same spot. It s also making my leg ache.
