best idea would be to see a doctor if this persist , can visit local doctor initially and may need consultation from orthopedic depending on diagnosis, as i am not able to examine and investigate you

Customer:

I did have a fall about 1 month ago twisted ankle, landed on my hand ,brused 2 weeks. x rays showed tendonitis of left anle. swelling started after 2 weeks .6" above ankle to toes with pitting edema. noticed the lump below kneecap 2-3 days.

DR HASAN :

well this doesnot seems to be related to that fall, however very very slight possibility of some role of that trauma in this lump, but very remote

I have an appointment with an orthopedist on monday ,my wife is very concerned. any guesses?

Yes as i said it can be bursitis, sabecous cyst , lipoma etc but not at all anything serious
