Semi firm lump on chin. It is on and off. Is it serious?

Hi, my husband keeps getting this semi firm lump on the side of his shin. It will go away for awhile, then return. It didn't hurt before, but now does somewhat. Could this be serious? He has shown it to his rheumatologist (he has rheumatoid) and she didn't seem too concerned! She said he could go for a Doppler (if he wanted) and see! What do you think?

Thanks for the query.
it might be a dialated vein.
as the swelling keeps on coming and going.
there can be a communication with vein or lymphatic.
