I am now 46 and completely forgot about it until recently. I was moisturizing my skin and noticed a lump in my upper inner thigh area that is soft to the touch but never moves from its spot. About a month ago, I developed tenderness in my left thigh and had no idea why. I spoke with my mother about the lump thing a few weeks before and while I was experiencing this tenderness she asked me to check my thigh. I did.
hi, while showering this morning i noticed i had a fairly big lump under my leg, about 1inch x 1/2inch, that seems to have sprung up over night, because i didin't feel anything there yesterday. It is a bit sensitive but isn't painful. Any idea what it could be? Maybe a muscle knot or something of the like?
A few days ago I noticed a had a lump under my skin, maybe an 1/2 inch or so big, it is right on the crease of my leg down by my groin. It was a little swollen and tender to the touch. So I went online and looked around... I thought maybe it could be a hernia (i do a lot of lifting at my job) or maybe a swollen lymph node(spelling?) but I didn't think it was herpes. Now, A few minutes ago I decided to check my lump again, and on the top of my lump is an open sore.
I have had a lump of skin under the flap of my vagina too but its not like a boil or something you can burst, just a lump of skin, what is it??
A painful lump in that location is most likely to be from a deep hematoma (deep bruise that bled into the area and formed a lump. Do you have normal sensation in that lower leg? I can't imagine the circumstances that it would be a tumor or cancer. There is a specific injury that occurs there which is a bruise to the side of the shin. It can bleed under the periosteum, which is the sheath surrounding the bone. Sometimes these do get infected and become an abcess, so Sally was right.
i have a hard lump under my skin in the pubic hair region about 1 or 2 inches above my clitorus. its not red and has no visibility, i just felt it the other day1 im hoping its just a cyst as i have one on my leg aswell. its about the size of a raison or even slightly bigger.

Hi, An armpit lump refers to enlargement of one or more lymph nodes under the arm. Lumps in the armpit have various causes. Cysts and infections on the surface of the skin of the armpit may be caused by shaving or use of antiperspirants Abscesses under the skin may also produce large, painful lumps in the armpit. This may also occur as a result of bacterial or viral infections, vaccinations , and cancer. There is a higher risk of cancer if the mother or siblings are diagnosed.

Now it has become less pronounced (can't see it al all) but there is a red circle on the skin where it used to be and I can still feel the circular lump under the skin layer. When I squeeze the skin, the red mark goes turn flesh tone and I can feel the little lump underneath. It doesn't bother me past being a little perfect circle red dot on the side of my thigh. There is no pain. It has not grown at all and the only change is the actual lump decreasing in size.
I have about four of these knots in my left upper leg,one in my right upper leg and one on the back of my upper arm.They are generally painful and can swell at times.They are really bothersome when trying to sleep or laying down.My primary doctor sent me to a orthopedic doctor and he could only guess that they were some type of vascular problem due to the fact that they swell.He mentioned valve infection where the valve in the vain was not working correctly and was inflamed.
Hello, The blood under the skin which causes the discoloration of bruising should be totally reabsorbed by the body in three weeks or less. In your case,as the symptoms are persisting for more than 1 month,so it may be due to formation of hematoma because of blood trapped in tissues.This blood may need to be drained. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
i have a painful lump under my skin right where my leg meets my labia (sorry tmi).. its exactly where my underwear rests. anyways it hurts if pressed on. its hard and doesn't move, but looking on the outside you can't see anything. i noticed it probably over a month ago. ive had to reschedule my pap smear once and in addition to that my doctor's office has moved it twice... so i haven't been in to ask my OBGYN about it.
,however, it is still a hard lump especially under the skin. Should I be alarmed or not? I think if it doesn't go away by Monday I will go back to the doctors. Is it normal to still be a large lump even after the drainage? Could it be cancer if it doesn't hurt?

Hi I have developed a small lump in my left groin. There is only one lump and it has been here for about 3 weeks now. I went to the doctors when it first appeared. She asked if i had any pains when urinating or any vaginal discharge. I haven't. She said it was from injury, since i had a bruise on my shin, and would disappear in 2 weeks. 3 weeks later it is still here. It occasionally causes a dull ache in my thigh and down to the bottom of my leg.
Genitourinary tract infections can result in swelling of the lymph nodes in the groin area. The itchiness in the inguinal area can be a result of a skin infection, especially if there is appearance of rashes. Even skin infection can result in swelling of the lymph nodes. Frequent scratching can result in secondary bacterial infection, making the swelling more prominent.
I have had a lump for over a year that is located between the crease where your leg meets your butt, and the perenium. It's usually flat and somewhat hard, but I can squeeze it into a pea size. When I try to squeeze it to get anything out of it a small white strand of semi-solid material comes out of another pore that's about 1/3 inch away from the actual lump. I pointed it out to my gynecologist and she said it was probably an ingrown hair.
