Painless lump under ankle

Just wondered whether anybody could shed light on an odd lump I have just under my ankle.  It's not painful, but I know it's there.  It's quite hard - like an extra ankle! I haven't twisted on it, although I did complete the London Marathon for the first time this year. I noticed the lump around 3 weeks after the run.  Could it just be the muscle showing strain???

I have to wait another fortnight to see my GP, and I am still running on it (not much - but 30 - 40 minutes per run).

Any ideas???

....I have no idea....I was just curious about someone who had rather similar name to mine!

Hope you get it sorted!

Just been to see the doc.....seems to be quite harmless.  He thinks I've done something to the ligament, and I have excess tissue in the area.  Should clear up on it's own - said they  ecomend that you continue training to help ligaments nowerdays!  So no excuses to lounge around in front of the tennis for me!

It's now September..and lump still here!  Going to see a physio to see if it can be sorted.  Doing the Cardiff half marathon in October and just need a bit of reassurance that I'm not making more damage to my ankle!

I think I may have the same thing, I noticed it a couple of weeks ago - it feels quite hard, isn't painful and is below my right ankle (on inside of foot) - there is nothing similar on my left foot.  As you say it's a bit like an extra ankle.  I was running regularly for the last 3 years but have more or less stopped now due to an achilles injury on my left leg and general back pain.  If you find out what it is - let me know !!
