Hello Donella
you are facing lot of pain in left calf along with nodule. your investigations till now are normal.I suggest that you should get done FNAC /Biopsy.But at the same time I think it may be inflammatory swelling eg. infected sebaceous gland. you may try antibiotics,anti inflammatory drugs, nothing to worry. get well soon.
