I noticed a hard (bone like) growth under my right lateral ankle bone a few months ago. I am now experiencing pain that comes and goes continuously throughout the day. The pain lasts only a few seconds. It is not related to activity. The hard growth is not tender to touch. I have no recall of injury to this ankle. What would you suggest?
