Lump on Lower Leg?

Answer

A lump that appears on the lower leg could be an indication of several different things. The lump could be the result of a boil, carbuncle, ingrown hair, abscess, cyst, or a tumor. It could also be the result of an injury to the area. If the lump still remains in place after a few days, it would be best to make an appointment with your doctor to have it checked out. Tests may or may not be required to find the diagnosis.
