Lump/bulge on shin bone

This answer was rated:

I have a tiny hard moveable bump on my shin bone on the right leg. There is no swelling or discoloration of the are. But if pressure is applied or touched too much the area becomes tender. I am a 23 year female.
The lump on the shin bone can be due to-
  • Lipoma - This is a collection of fat cells. The lump is usually semi-hard and movable.
  • Trauma can also lead to formation of a lump
  • Tumor - A bone tumor can present as a lump on the shin bone. These tumors are usually benign but can rarely be malignant.
I would advise you to consult an Orthopedecian to find out the cause of the ,ump and whether it requires any treatment. You might need investigations like X-ray or MRI bone.
