Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. This knot needs to be examined. Nodes in calf are less likely. It could be soft tissue. Further commenting will need examination of the calf area.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
