    Unhappy 2 hard lumps in lower leg not visible pls help

    Hi everyone

    A couple of days ago while putting on lotion i noticed two lump just to the side of my shin half way down. One is the size of a grape and the other is right next to it but aprox half the size. they are quite hard but not bone hard. They aren't visible which is why i have only just noticed them, but they can be moved about slightly under pressure. no pain associated with them. i was wondering if any one had any ideas what they could be, if they are serious or not or if i should see a dr about them?

    the past couple of month i have been increasingly run down and experiencing dreadful headaches more frequently which i dont know if they are linked or just a coincidence?

    any help will be much appreciated! thank you

    Hello Malissa

    We should always check in with a doctor with any kind of lump. It is a valid concern when we find a lump anywhere. Chances are it is just a couple of common fatty tumors, but in the event that it is more, the earlier treated the better. I am an older lady and have learned that time spent worrying is better spent being proactive and getting to the bottom of things.

    Make an appointment on Monday morning. Do it!

    Here's hoping that we can all smile when the reassurance comes that all is well.
