Ankle protrusion ,should I go see a doctor?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I have an almost hard springy lump under my ankle bone which I noticed after my most recent ankle sprain about 6 months ago which I've had 3 on the same ankle this year at some points you can see it through my skin but it doesn't hurt much in day to day life but I seem to be rolling my ankle at just random times like walking down the street this lump is on the other ankle but is a lot less protruding I was wondering wether I should get it checked out

    I sure would have it looked at!  I don't know anything about this subject.  many ears ago I had a friend with the same trouble, she ended up having surgery. I hope you don't need it but it is better to get it looked at before it gets worse.

    Don't wonder about having it checked.  Do so.  You will feel better having it looked at by a medical professional.  In addition, if it is a problem the quicker it is taken care of the better the results.  Your concern will not be resolved by aking for unqualified opinions.  Good luck.

    It sounds like it could be a ganglion, look it up and see if you think it might be that. It's to do with the synovial fluid around a joint. They can occur on various parts of the body, I had one on the top of my left wrist which was repaired but now have a couple on my index finger.
