Lump on leg

That says it all really!
Ive noticed it over the last two months, its not consistently sore but is tender and sore if pressed on gently.
The skin above is red, the red patch has got bigger since i first noticed it but slowly not like cellulitis.
I can remember banging that area on the swimming pool ladder on holidays in July but no injury since.
I dont want to go to the doctor if its something daft😊😊
Does anyone know what this might be?

Any new lump should be evaluated by a GP.
He/she won't think you're being daft.

Erythema nodosum? Painful purple brown things. Start as a lump then inverts to a dent. I've had it about 3 or 4 times. Google it.

Is it hot and red? Could be thrombophlebitis. It's not usually serious or debilitating but worth getting it checked with the GP.
