Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Are you able to upload a picture of the lump here?
Painful lump if it is soft or fluctuant is likely a lipoma.
A growing lipoma can press on the local nerve causing pain.

In case of firm lump this can be arising from the bone mostly benign chondroma or osteoma.
X-rays of the shin bone will confirm that in that case.
Best wishes

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.
