Not necessarily so. When I was a youth around the age of 11, my brother (age 6) and I were in the basement. My brother ran upstairs to get a banana and bumped his shin on the stairs. He cried and cried and the next day he seen our family doctor but they could find nothing wrong. The pain eventually went away but not quite a year later his leg started going funny on him and it was discovered that he had started a tumor in that spot. He ended up having surgery to remove this tumor from his shin and had to take out a part of his hip bone to replace this.

So it may have hurt in the beginning and then stopped but this doesn't necessarily mean there is nothing wrong. If you are concerned definitely G.S.A.D. and at least get it x-rayed.

Hi there,

just read everybody's views and thought I'd give my tuppence.

I've been doing kickboxing for about 6-7 years now and do a lot of shin conditioning as our style allows kicks above knee's (thigh kicks) in full contact. When checking/blocking thigh kicks with a knee block there is always some violent bone on bone action. I had a slight (unrelated) knee injury and went to the doctors and casually mentioned the amount of "dents" running along the length of both of my shins, giving an almost serrated feel to them. He laughed when I explained the shin on shin nature of blocking kicks and said it was to be expected of such an activity. He asked if I had ever seen a cricket bat that had been used? He said that it has lots of small dents etc all over it from hitting the ball. Both the ball and the willow bat are harder that human bone and that it was natural enough for the surface of the bone to change under such stress and that it wouldn't cause any problems.

That being said you're not here to compare shin bones with and yours may feel different or be worse etc so mention it to your doc and tell us what he says!!! The tumor story sounds pretty scary so I wouldn't want to risk it!!!!!!!!

Hi guys, thanks for the replies.

I decided to get a doctor to check it out, just to know whether it's anything to worry about or not.

What she basically said is that it wasn't dangerous. I had obviously received a pretty heavy knock. However as far as I can recall, the dent is in some kind of cartilage running along the shin bone itself.

What she said was that the shin bone is extremely hard, so it would really take a lot to do any real damage to it. And if this was the case, I definitely wouldn't be able to put any weight on it at all and would pretty much know instantly that it was bad.

The indent would maybe go away, but not for sure, so all you guys with indents all over arms or whatever needn't worry .

i just did something similar to this. you see im fan of free running and i like jumping over stuff, and i tried to jump over my steel framed coffe tabel and tripped and landed on the edge of teh the table with both my shins, the left one is jsut slightly bruised but the right one has got wat seem to be an indentation, i would jsut also like to point out that i play alot of football with alot of 'indecent players' so lets jsut say ive taken quite a fair share of punishment to my shins, but it never got dented before, and the weird thing is there is no bruising, no pain when i stand or anythin, i can run jump nothing seem to be wrong, the only thin is that the dent, around 1 cm wide, when i push it in it hurts slightly, but thats it. im confused should i b worried, should i just leave it, and if anybody know plz tell me wat exactly you think it is, cause i would ave at least expected there to be a little bruising, and on yeh there isnt even any change in the colour of my skin. i mean ive broken bones before but never fractured them should i b wirried??? is this gonna haunt me later?? and i know many of the post suggest that i go see a doctor but that takes time and its kinda in the middel of my GCSE so i would prefer to either see a doctor after this or hopefully u guys can help me out, and i suppose if its really serious i'd have no other choice but plz id appreciate some help.

It's been about a year and a half since this thread was created, and looking back at my previous post, my forearms are still in the same condition, but I'm thinking they may be "bumped" instead of dented. I think I have many raised surfaces rather than bumped surfaces.. which I believe are probably calcifications, or spots in which the bone has strengthened itself. Well, whatever helps me sleep at night I suppose.

Regardless, bigk22... There seems to be a lot of mixed opinions on this subject. If you're worried, see a doctor. That's about all any of us can say to you.
