Customer Question

I have 2 small lumps on the back tendon of my right leg - in the thigh region. About the size of a pea, the other the size of a small lima bean. I only feel them when I am rsising my leg to syretch it. I take synthroid and 5 mg if prednisone. What might they be? They don't seem to be oainful, unless I massage them for a while.

Thanks for this question.

Do you have a pic?

These are most likely benign cysts but a pic will confirm it
