Customer Question

Hi, I've had a hard round lump/bump on my lower leg (about 3 inches below my knee) for about 4 years, I first noticed it when pregnant. It's reddish brown in color and about 5mm. My primary care doctor thinks it might be a wart, but I'm not sure. Any ideas?

Thanks for your question.

Can you upload a photograph of the lump?

Is it painful to touch?

Has it remained same sized over these years?

Does it give any type of trouble to you?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I can upload a photo. Just a second. It is not painful and seems to be the same size. No trouble, just sometimes knick it while shaving.

Were you able to see photo?
Expert:  Dr.Amita replied 9 months ago.

I did see the photo.I agree with your primary care physician's opinion.

It does seem like a wart.

If it is not troubling you can leave it as such.
