I've had this lump for a couple months and it just sprung up out of nowhere. In the first week or two it was painful and nothing really helped the pain, but now I don't have much feeling there anymore. It's on my shin and feels as if it's attached to my bone because it doesn't move and is hard as a rock. I'm a teenager by the way if that information is needed. If anyone could give me a little insight of what this could be, that would be great. Thanks in advance :)

  • I am 30 and both of my shins have bumps that go all the way down them. I've had them for as long as I can remember and they don't move, they don't really hurt, they are skin color. I've asked many doctors and they have no answers I was very active in my teen years playing sports. I've always had jobs that require me to stand all day and walk concrete floors. The only thing I can find online that remotely resembles what I have is shin splints. Maybe do some research on them, I hope you find an answer because I can't seem to find one and my legs look awful.

  • Most probably it seems like hemorrhoid. Good luck! Hope it gets better
