Lump in ones hamstring

Oct 10th, 2017

I am writing on behalf of my husband who has had a persistent lump in his
hamstring for a number of years. The injury occurred at the end of a long run
and left him limping and in a lot of pain. He has since seen a number of
physios and not had much luck, and hasn’t been able to run since. He has been
working around it, but recently felt like he damaged it again at the gym.

I was wondering if you can point me in the direction of a specialist in
longstanding hamstring injuries as he is quite despondent about it and would
like to be able to run properly again one day.

Thanks for your help,

Hi Cassie

It’s sounds as if your husband has torn his hamstring and the torn end has retracted back up his thigh – that’s the lump you feel.


You can live with this (as long as it’s not massive) but he’ll need to do some rehab to help maximise the strength of the rest of the muscle (as he’s got a chunk missing) and help stabilise the tissue to stop this becoming a recurrent issue.


Getting a simple diagnostic ultrasound scan is the way forward to establish the next step – and then it’s all about right type of rehab.


Look at reputation to see where to do that – or depending what part of the UK you’re in, I can recommend somewhere.


So US scan first then decent rehab second.
