All right fellow UG armchair doctors, tell me if this is serious or nothing.

As a Judoka I get foot swept (read that as "kicked repeatedly") on the inside ankle and side of shin area of my right leg a lot. I have started wearing shin pads, but still have lots of lumps and bruises. Recently I noticed a tiny (about the size of a pea or a little smaller) lump about 4 inches below my knee on the left side of my shin. It is somewhat soft and moves around a little when I press on it. If I press directly on it with the tip of my thumb or finger it BURNS LIKE FIRE. lol Otherwise, I feel nothing from it.

So, what d'ya think? No big deal, it'll go away soon? Or Cancer? lol

"It's not a tumor!!!"

I wouldn't worry about it too much, especially if you are getting hit there repeatedly. If it becomes overly worrisome, get it checked out by a doctor, but most likely it is just a small hematoma in the area.

Thanks bro. Though your name is a little too close to "Matt Battle" for comfort.

Not quite sure who Matt Battle is so you will have to inform me on that.

just watch it. if it keeps growing, go see a doctor and ask for an ultrasound. i doubt it is cancer.
