What are these lumps on my ankles/shins ?

Posted by camocutie979

I noticed this like 6 months ago but have never really done anything about it. The lumps disapear and reappear in similar areas. They only appear on my lower shins and ankles.  I dont run or work out so its not like I have concussive injuries and Im not overweight. They are often painful but do not protrude from the skin or show redness. They can be palpated and are firm to the touch. They are about an inch in diameter. Are these lymphnodes? Why are they doing this? What else could be the problem?
