Suggest Treatment For A Painless Lump On The Leg

I have a spot on my side that looks somewhat like a hickey. I ve had it for about 4 months now. It s about 2 inches long and about an inch wide. It doesn t hurt or itch. I have just noticed, just showed up, a spot on my leg. It s only like an inch long and very thin. What could thus be? Thanks!

Hi, thanks for sharing your health concerns with HCM!

Well, If I were your treating Doctor for this case of a painless lump on the leg, I would come up with three possibilities, these include:
1.     a lipoma or benign fatty tumor or neurofibroma
2.     The second possibility is of a benign cyst, ganglion or bursa     
3.     The last possibility is of some normal / developmental nodule like muscular nodule or just a feeling for you!
     
Overall, it is benign and not to worry about this but you could go for FNAC test for confirmation if still worried!

Hope this answers your question. If you have additional questions or follow up questions then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your questions.

Wishing you good health.
