Any nurses? HELP What is this lump on my leg???

about a month ago, while lotioning my legs, i noticed a lump about the size of a golfball cut in half on the back of my right leg on the inside right above the back of my knee...it didnt hurt or anything so i figured it would go away...well, it's STILL there and now it HURTS...i have cramp like pains in that area and the lower part of my leg and occasionally feel some nerve pain down the back of the lower half of my leg and into my foot. what could this be? i KNOW i need to see a doctor, but i dont have insurance and i dont have the $100 it takes to even see a primary care physician.

  • I'm sorry I'm not a nurse but I would have that checked out, money or no money. It could be nothing but it could be something very serious that you can have treated now and be cured. Please don't wait.

  • I did not know nurses have a license to practice medicine and diagnose illnesses. Unless they are nurse practitioners.
