Default Strange lump in my calf after doing squats?

I don't know what this could be. I went to the gym this afternoon and did my usual workout which includes squats. After I got home and settled I crossed my legs Indian style and felt a sharp pain. I felt around and discovered a painful lump on the lower part of my calf muscle. Its about the size of a golf ball. My boyfriend said I probably pulled a muscle. The only thing is I don't feel it at all if I don't touch it. I can walk, run, and do everything I did before. I'm just wondering if anyone has experienced this before or has any idea what it could be. I'm going to keep an eye on it for the next few days and if it doesn't go down I may see a doctor.

I replied to your other post as well.

Please get it checked for a blood clot - deep vein thrombosis, google it, you can get it from just sitting on airplane.

I agree. Get it checked ASAP. A blood clot is nothing to mess around with.
