Lumps In The Area Under The Ankles?
afternoon, I want to ask my condition, is this gout or not?
Hi Apriyani .. Thank you for the question.
Lumps in the area under the ankles can be caused by several things, including:
Ganglion cysts - cysts are fluid-filled sacs. Ganglionic cases usually appear in the area around the wrist or ankle.
Lipoma - enlargement of the fat tissue. The lump is painless, supple, the enlargement is not progressive, the color is the same as the surroundings, mobile
Abscess - a collection of pus due to infection
If the lump is caused by uric acid, it will generally appear on the knee, elbow, fingers or toes, heel, arm, or ear. This lump is an accumulation of uric acid which is called tofi.
If you feel the lump is getting bigger, painful, there is interference with the movement of the joints, then it is better for you to see a doctor. The doctor will perform a physical examination directly and can be supported by ultrasound or X-rays. So that the right diagnosis can be found and the right treatment steps can be taken. Meanwhile, what you can do: avoid massaging / massaging the lumps, to reduce pain you can take paracetamol according to the dosage or compress it with a warm towel, avoid excessive movement of the ankle area.
