The cause of your lump could be many things, from something as serious as cancer, to something only annoying, like shin splits. Are you a runner, or did you recently take up running? If so, then your problem is most likey just shin splints. If the lump is smaller, it could just be something simple like an ingrown hair.

Being hit by something, In your sleep, or making a strange movement when you use it. I had the same myself, and I've got some créme and used it for a week, It didnt hurt after that. Another posibility is that you used your shin to much, so resting would be the only option then.

If it is not simply a bruise or bump caused by hitting your shin into something, it could very likely be shin splints. People sometimes refer to this as "growing pains" but it is possible for it to happen at any age.

Painful lump in your left shin may be the cause due to over heat. Slogging for hours together will also be the reason. If not it may be the cause of too much fat in your body
