A Hard Lump

Some individuals may notice a hard lump after they have a leg cramp. This lump is a mass of muscle that arises after a particularly large spasm. The lump usually isn't painful, but it can be uncomfortable and unappealing to look at.

Those who see a lump arise after a cramp may find that stretching or massage can relieve the area and relax the leg overall, allowing it to recover.
