#ShouldIWorry about the lump on my leg?

Leg lumps can be caused by multiple conditions ranging from infections, inflammation, tumours, and trauma. 

While not all cases are serious, it is essential to look out for signs of increased swelling, deformity, pus or discharge, redness, and warmth. 

One of the more common conditions of a leg lump is a lipoma. A skin lipoma is a soft, fatty growth that develops under your skin. It can be found anywhere on your body but usually forms on your back, arm, or leg. A lipoma typically feels soft and does not cause any pain.

While it is non-cancerous, a lipoma is usually removed for aesthetic reasons or if it compresses a nerve, leading to pain.
