My freind is scared/doesnt know of a good doctor, and she has a lump presumably a cyst on the back of her calf muscle. its about 1/2 of an inch wide size wise, she said the skin was somewhat red and it hurts to touch it.
Any opinions would be apprciated. Is this something a doctor should check out. If there are any details more that need to be known to determine an answer please post back with them.
Thank you for your time, I am very concernd please respond ASAP.

Could someone just give me an idea of whether or not this should be seen by a real doctor.

It could be lots of things, some of which are life threatening..... So seeing a doctor should be a high priority.

Thank you for your response. I would still like a diagnosis if that is possible if anyone is out there. Thank you again.
