I have a soft lump on the top of my foot. It doesn't hurt but feels slightly tender to the touch. I have no idea what this could be? I've been having leg pain as well that feels like shock pains but have no swelling. Could the lump be a symptom of dvt or something more serious?

Probably a ganglion cyst. They start out soft and get harder over time. It can feel a little sore sometimes. You should see a doctor to get a definite diagnosis, but if it's a ganglion cyst, they're annoying but not dangerous.

If your leg is hurting too you might want to have your doctor check it and make sure it isn't a vein that is ruptured.
