Hello. Could you take a picture of it with your smartphone and upload it? I would ask you where exactly on the leg is it located, on your thigh or calf? Is it discolored, slightly darker or mottled? Are you overweight, any other medical problems, any medications you take? Please let me know and I will try to give you a list of possibilities, or with a picture maybe a better answer. Please only pay for this answer when you are satisfied. Dr Frank

it is right below my right knee and on the inside of the upper calf or shin. It felt like a bump on the inside and was small, but now it is larger. there is no color or unusual appearance of the area it just looks sightly swollen. In addition, I have experienced this before and eventually it goes away. It just trips me out as to what it is. and it has a slight throbbing to it. I feel soreness when I stand and after I start to walk It eases up.

I'm withdrawing the question because the service is kind of confusing to me
