A foot doctor diagnosed a full, soft swelling to the left and lower right of my left ankle as a lipoma. The size being about half-dollar size in diameter. I'm worried after reading the postings. He did an X-ray and I have asked to be scheduled for the later part of September for surgical removal, with use of suchers and three week recovery. If these attach to nerves or muscle it sounds like damage could result. I'm a diabetic and some neorapthy is evident. The condition as I feel it today is ongoing for over five years. But more difficulty is evident in numbing pain even on the leg muscles. Walking for exercise is almost impossibe as the ankle doubles in size by evening with swelling. Your comments about correct diagnosis welcome!
