Swelling in the leg

Postby corzhens » Thu Jun 16, 2016 6:15 am

More than a year ago, there emerge a bulge on my right leg, just opposite the shin. It will stay for a day or 2 then it will vanish. It appears randomly, can't say if once or twice a month and even if I have made my observations, I still can't say the reason why that bulge appears. The bulge is like a mouse that is about 2 inches in oblong diameter.

My brother-in-law is a physician. He said that the mouse is swollen muscle. It is painful when he pressed on it. But it is not similar to varicose vein but a simple swelling of muscle. I have consulted our office physician and I got the same diagnosis. They both said that the mouse would appear when my leg is abused (physically). And the treatment prescribed when it emerges is a salve or hot compress.

You should get a third opinion from a specialist. Make sure they conduct comprehensive tests this time. My doctor at OrthoTexas, Frisco always recommend a thorough diagnosis of the condition to prevent the condition from worsening.
