Ask A Doctor - ankle injury - DesiMD Healthcare Services


About 4 months ago I was hit by a very hard line drive softball a little above my ankle on the inside of my right leg. I am still experiencing lots of swelling and very little bruising. This is accompanied by a large lump or knot under the skin where I was hit. I have not been to any doctor or had an X-ray. What could be wrong with it? - Asked by M W on 15-Nov-2014 09:10:34

    When you were hit with the ball, the injury could range from sprain to fracture . And when bones are not aligned right , fractures heal in crooked way and might have caused that hard lump .This is very difficult to determine without examination. I would recommed examination and referral to ortho if needed.
