I am a healthy 26 year old female. About a month and a half ago I developed a lump on my right outer ankle just above the joint. It is tender to the touch. I have been to 5 different doctors and they have all had different opinions. One lady told me that it is normal for one leg the dominant leg to look larger than the other. Another said I was wearing to high of shoes, another told me I had tendonitis but I wasn't injured at all and there is no bruising. There is a small red circle about a half inch in diameter. Than the doctor that I believe had the right idea said it feels like a blob but isn't very definate and that wouldn't indicate a tumor. I had an xray no probs. seen on that. It runs along my leg muscle. I am afraid this could be some kind of bone, muscle or nerve cancer. Any ideas would be great!!
