Need to be examined-: And investigated by an orthopod. This might be a muscle hernia or a bony lesion, or a ruptured tendon ( retracted and rolled), or a hematoma (collection of blood which has clotted). Difficult to say what exactly? See your orthopod. Good luck..

See doc: A hard lump should be evaluated by a doc especially if it hurts and is associated with nerve symptoms. An MRI may be necessary and a biopsy if it is not evident as to what it is.

Possibly: They are of two types. The leiomyoma occurs in the skin or gut but the common form is the uterine fibroid. Rhabdomyomas are rare tumors of muscles, they occur in childhood and often become malignant assuming this is a uterine fibroid, if it were in the proper anatomic location it could cause vascular compromise, nerve compression, pelvic cramping or even a referred pain pattern.

Maybe, maybe not: If a person is "out of shape" due to not exercising recently, then getting some muscle aches or cramps with running or walking isn't bad. With stretching, massage, and a gradual increase in exercises, the symptoms should go away. If symptoms persist or are worrisome, a primary care doctor should evaluate to see if there is a disease or disorder that is causing the pains.

Maybe...: We suggest rest, ice, elevation, compression and NSAID of choice. You don't necessarily have to stop, but you may need to back off some. If it worsens, you may have to stop and get it checked out.
