Hello all,

Or the past couple of months my leg by my ankle is sore and I have noticed a swollen small lump just by my ankle towards the Achilles’ tendon. My MM is lower front same leg. I’ve called my doc who is sending me for an ultra sound scan he knows my history. I am so scared now.

MLD1973, understandable that you're anxious and scared. Sorry. Glad you reached out to your doc and that he is being proactive. Thoughts with you.

Hi Mandy
You were so supportive to me with my anxiety when I first posted on here not long ago. I was meaning to email you to keep in contact and I will. Just wanted to say all the best for your ultrasound and positive thoughts to you.
