I have 2 swellings on the inner right calf of my leg.

Customer Question

Hi I have 2 swellings on the inner right calf of my leg. They have been there for over one month now, but they are aching and causing pain. They are about the size of an egg roughly and feel firm. I am worried about dvt or some kind of tumour. I recently
saw my doctor as I am also experiencing general pain in my leg and she said she thought I had nerve pain and that the swelling was unrelated. I am worried about the swellings though.

do you have any more pics?

I am attaching a pic now. It isn't the best pic as hard to get it on camera really.

were you tested for clots?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, the doctor didn't seem concerned at all. She gave me amytripiline for the pain and she has booked in a blood test to rule out other things. Do you think it could be that?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
Well it certainly could just be nerve pain but serious things like clots need to be ruled out first and foremost
