... On my shin! About a week ago, I noticed a lump on my shin that was painful to touch. When pushed on, the type of pain is reminiscent of how a knot in your back would feel. I haven't tripped, slipped, twisted, or knocked it in any way. Tonight, I noticed that it's starting to get just a hint of reddish color. Barely noticeable, but still there. I just established a PCP, and I don't want her to think I'm a hypochondriac if I go in there for this; but I am getting a bit concerned. Any ideas or advice?
