Title: Lump to the left of my incision on left leg
Post by: Theclabo on May 30, 2014, 07:48:00 PM
Hello everyone

I have just noticed today that there is a totally solid and completely painless  lump towards the side of my tibia scar.  It feels totally solid like bone or something and doesnt move around, is fixed in place whatever it is but I am just wondering what this might be and why I have only noticed it now. It really bulges out when I bend my knee. I had a tibial tubercle fracture but the lump is on the other side of the surgery. I had quite alot of swelling around this area for a few months so not sure if that has anything to do with it.  A while ago it felt like a much bigger lump was there but softer and now its just like something hard under the skin.

Any ideas about what this could be?

Thanks
