Causes Of Lumps In The Shin?
Hello, some time ago when I was climbing the stairs my shin hit the end of the stairs and caused bruising and pain, but now the bruises and pain disappear but there is still a lump, when held painlessly, the shape extends sideways and is rather hard. But this makes me worry, what do you think?
Thank you for the question.
Hard lumps that extend to the side in the shin that appear after a collision, may occur due to residual inflammation after a collision. When inflamed, normally the tissue will indeed swell so that a mass can appear like a lump. Frequently, if there are no more disturbing complaints, such as pain or movement disorders, this lump will slowly collapse on its own. You can speed up the deflection of the lump by applying warm compresses to the water, resting the painful leg so that it doesn't have excessive physical activity, and always wear comfortable clothes that aren't too tight. Avoid carelessly pressing or sorting lumps that appear so as not to cause more severe tissue damage.
Aside from the impact of the impact, it may also be, bumps on the skin around the shin that you experience arise due to other factors, for example hypertrophic scars, skin infections, skin tags, benign or malignant tumors, broken bones or fractures, joint dislocations, and so on. If within 1 week after the bump does not go flat, if the size of the lump actually enlarges, or if you feel other symptoms that interfere, such as pain and movement disorders, do not hesitate to check yourself directly to the doctor or surgeon so that the cause of your complaint can be well identified. For serious suspected cases, the doctor may recommend that you undergo additional examinations, such as x-rays, CT scans, or tissue biopsies from lumps that appear. That way, the treatment can be given by doctors according to the underlying cause.
Hope this helps ...
