Pain and swelling in shin and ankle -- can this be from hip?

I've noticed my left ankle feels swollen occasionally in the morning when I get up for the last several months. Never paid much attention to it but now that I'm not wearing socks and have on capris (nice weather here), I can see that my ankle, and shin on the left are slightly swollen. They also really hurt today. I'm on my period, so don't know if this is water retention, but I don't know why it would be on that side. This is also the same side as the hip pain. The pain in is my groin and rear, and I know these can be from hip problems, but I don't think the ankle and shin pain could be related.

1 1/2 years ago I broke a toe on that foot, and had to walk on the back side of my foot for several weeks. I've noticed that I do that a lot now, just naturally position my foot that way. Don't know if this is related. But I just went to my doctor today and didn't mention it to him because it wasn't bad this morning, but now it really hurts and I can see the swelling.

I also have a lump on the back of my thigh under the skin about 4 inches up from the back of my knee. Don't know if this is related at all. Above my ankle and my shin are really hurting right now.

The thing that has me most worried is what if the pain I have in my groin is from a tumor and that is what is causing the swelling? As you can tell my imagination is working overtime on this.

I'm freaking out about this.
