I have a painful bruise-like lump on my lower right shin. My regular doctor said it is most likely related to my ulcerative colitis.  She told me what it was called but I had never heard the term before and now I can't remember what she said.  This lump/bruise has been on my leg since around Thanksgiving.  It about the same diameter as a coffee cup and raised about 1/2 an inch.  She wants to take a wait and see approach.  If it's related to my UC it could come and go over time.  Has anyone ever had anything like this?

I've never had what you are experiencing but I guess a certain percentage of people get these that have an IBD. Below is a link that should tell you more about them.

have had it... I also forget the name that my GI gave it. It did go away. At first I thought it was a shin splint. I found some relief from the discomfort of it by putting mineral ice on it and wrapping it with an ace bandage. Knock on wood it hasn't come back since it left... only had it that one time. But like everything else with this DD I'm sure it will show up again some day.

I had that twice all over my shins. The first time was before i had uc. i remember having to wear my big sisters shoes because my feet were so swollen! It went away but I cant remember how long it took maybe a couple months. The second time was really bad and I think I used steroid cream. It was very painful and I still have a scar 6 years later. I hope yours goes away soon they're horrible things. Try to get your uc under control and that should help matters. If it gets worse go to your doctor.
