Customer Question

I have a lump on the back of my leg just above my a k
JA: How long have you had the lump? Is it hard or soft?
Customer: Ankle. It has been there for two months. I do not recall any tea. It is hard and painful. It is not red or hot.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Trauma. Now the pain is getting worse and is also going into my heel. The lump is the size of the top of thumb. It's on the bone right where I bend my ankle. And it hurts on the bone that goes to my heel.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.

Have you seen an orthopedic doctor about this? Had xrays?
