It is almost certainly a cyst, and it sounds like a huge one. I really think you need a referral. The tendon associated with lace bite isn't much wider than a pencil, so if its swollen to the size of a golf ball, you have a potentially serious issue.


Anyways, do what you want, but you are putting your mobility at risk by trying to "play through" this. You need a referral to someone who knows what they are talking about. Lace bite is pretty rare in clinical practice, especially where there isn't much in the way of winter sports.
Could it be a calcium deposit? I've read that can happen with lace bite.
