Shin splints? Maybe you need softer ground to run on?

I’m pretty sure it’s a bruise… because it’s almost all bone there, you can super feel/see any swelling… I have hit or gotten hit in the shins many a time (sort of clutzy/softballs) and there is always a bump.

I agree with @Lauren, it is probably a bruise. My shins are covered with lumps and bumps! Of course I am not a physician, and if it eases your mind to see someone about it, you probably should (I understand thinking the worst – I work in a cancer hospital, and am a terrible hypochondriac sometimes!!).

Yes, I think it’s an internal bruise… that’s a long time to be sitting with your leg up against something… must be a good game! HAHAHA

I think it’s just a bruise too. And stop touching it! You’re making it worse :o)

I know if you get those around your wrists that they could be cool gnarly cysts – but it sounds like you just have a bruise. SHame though – they look like little gremlins when they come out!!! heehee

I can’t help but be interested in cysts after my husband had one removed from his mid-back – it was just this bump under the skin, no discoloration. They are gruesome and in a strange way, I’m sad that I’ve never gotten one (in a place I could cover up if it scarred, that is). Gross!?!?!

Could definitely be a cyst!  I had one on my scalp (disgusting!) that was removed last year, and it sounds a lot like what you’re describing.
