Hi Carol, thanks for getting back to me.  I noticed this about two years ago I walked the every night and my legs sometimes both would give me pain up the sides...seems like from Ankles up.  My left let was always worse and I would stop to rub my leg and find the lump.  I never really gave it a thought of anything then when I'm down walking it would go away.  The other day I was sitting on bleachers watching a software game and it popped out again - nothing comes out of it...it's on the inside.  A friend asked me about it.  I am over weight and do need to walk but when you are in pain and it's your leg...it's not fun!
Was this lump there before or did it just appear or does it appear every time you walk? Does anything ooze out of it, or it just appears? Does it subside afterwards or just stay there?
