    Cyst?

    Got a Knot came up on my schin bone and thinking something may have hit me there about 6 weeks or so ago anyway went to my Dr about it last week and she said she think's it's a gangilon cyst. had one on my wrist years ago and thought that was the only place you got them but she said that it was on a tendon and that any place you got a tendon you can get one. anybody else ever had them come up in other places beside's your wrist?

    Yes, while most occur in the hand and wrist, they can occur elsewhere. Here is some good information about ganglion cysts:

    Thanks KLD, this one is about halfway up my sock line, not on a joint at all. Just kinda figured that with the way my legs are now along with having diabetes that I better get it checked out.
