My husband showed me this lump on his leg before bed last night and has now gone out of town to work and will be working late so can't get to doctors today.

It's squidgy when pushed. If he puts his leg up high you can't see it or if he puts his foot up on his tip toes. when he puts his foot flat it pops out. It seems to have a vein running either side of it so not sure if it's in the vein. He said it isn't sore. He's got no swelling and it's not hot to touch. its just below his knee on his calf. Spoke to cousin who is a nurse who said if it were a blood clot you wouldn't see it protruing like that and it's not like a varicose vein either..

Anyone know what it could be or had one before?

Lipoma? Little fatty lump, benign.
