help, whats up?

A couple of years ago i slipped on some rocks and badly bruised my leg and had a huge lump. it got better but there was always a slight bump there. the lump has become painful to touch and when walking it stiffens up and becomes painful.

what could be the problem after all this time?

Re: help, whats up?

Have you been checked for DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) or blood clots??

I suggest you see your doctor. He/she can answer your questions much better than we can.
Oh, by the way, welcome to the pain board.

Re: help, whats up?

Laurie,

Welcome!

What part of your leg is involved, and is the lump on the bone, tendon type material or soft tissue? Was it ever an open wound?

Fred is right. Even if we hit on the answer you won't know for sure until you get a proper diagnosis. Please see your doc.

Re: help, whats up?

Laurie,

often after we hurt ourselves or after surgeries scar tissue forms on that area. I cut my finger when I was 14; I still have a little bump due to scar tissue.This are always will be sensetive to touch.
But to be on safe side, just check it with your DR; not a bad idea.

Best of luck to you and welcome to this board!
