I have a place on my leg that I was worried about. When I went in for a dr appointment I asked my dr what it was. All she told me was that it was a fat deposit. Thats fine but I just wonder if it could be caused by my diatetes. Anyone else have one show up after being diagnosed?

I have a small bump on my stomach just to the right of my belly button. It’s been there for several years now. It hasn’t gotten bigger or smaller, it s just there, always the same. That’s one reason I decided to go for the physical. I have been planning to have it checked out for several years and never gotten around to making an appointment. Last year when I was having my oil changed I went across the street to make an appointment at the clinic. That’s what the doctor told me. Said not to worry. Didn’t have to do anything. I’ll be changing doctors soon so will be asking for another opinion. Don’t know if it’s related to diabetes or not. I figure its part of the aging progress.

Could you describe the "place" on your leg? What part of your leg is it on? What does it look like? How big is it?

It would be helpful to know to be able to possibly compare.

I have a spot on my leg (that I don't think is a fatty deposit). It is on my right shin just about half way below the knee a little to the right side of the shin's midline. It is not tender at all but if I bump it at all or rub it hard it will bleed.

I tell you this so you can get an idea of what kind of information might be useful for comparison or even a guess (that's all I at can do is guess) at what it might be.

Anyway hope to see you around the discussion boards.

Blessings to you and yours
