Question:

Hello, I just returned from a long flight. I noticed a hard pea sized lump back of leg just below the pit of knee. Hurts if pressed. I fly often, and wonder if it could be a clot, or need urget attention. Flying again in a few days. Thank you.

Answer:

Thank you for visiting NetWellness.  I would recommend seeing your primary care doctor to evaluate this further.
