The Lump Is Close To The Ankle And Is Red In Color?
Hello, thank you for your question.
From the events you described, a lump or swelling near the ankle can be caused by the following conditions:
Peroneal tendinitis, is an inflammation of the tendon (tissue that attaches bone to muscle) located behind the ankle. Symptoms include pain and swelling after activities and complaints lessen after resting.
Rheumatoid arthritis, inflammation of the joints, including the ankle joint. This condition is an autoimmune disease.
Cellulitis, which is inflammation caused by an infection under the skin.
Bursitis, which is inflammation of the bursa characterized by pain and swelling of the bursa. Bursa are fluid-filled sacs that act as cushions between tendons and bones.
Of course, to determine the cause of the condition you are experiencing requires direct examination by a doctor. For that do not hesitate to consult again (follow up) with the treating doctor. It may require additional investigations in the form of X-rays, CT scans or MRI.
For a while, rest the swollen and painful feet. Apply an ice pack to reduce swelling and help reduce pain. Ice compress can use ice wrapped in a towel. Keep taking antibiotics and medications given by your doctor as directed.
That's the information I can provide, hopefully it's useful.
