Customer reply replied 8 months ago
just swollen around my ankle maybe the size of a 20 cent piece feels like fluid but is a little hard also
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 8 months ago

This can be;

1) A varicose vein.

2) Ganglion; Fluid around a tendon.

3) Lipoma.

This is unlikely to be worrisome.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
