Anyone have calcium deposits on their body and do they sound like this?

Asked by tan235 (877points) March 2nd, 2011

I have this weird little bump on my thigh, i’ve had it for about 8 years now, when i first got it i pricked it with a pin thinking it was an in grown hair and it bled heaps like one, but is still there, it hasn’t grown in fact it’s gotten a bit smaller now, but does it sound like a calcium deposit?
It’s small – like a pin head, and bulbous feeing and it feels hard.

any ideas?

I had one and it was on the top of my foot. I was pregnant at the time and it went away when the baby was born. Mine was medium sized and sensitive to weight on it. If I wore shoes for a long time it would hurt. It was hard like bone. I don’t think I could have stuck a pin in it so I don’t think that’s what you have. However I’m not a doctor and I personally would ask one!

I have one. It’s on my right testicle. Want a thrill? Find a lump there. It still creeps me out.

Per @noelleptic’s answer: Google Gangilon cysts. I am too busy now.
