Needs consultation: Recommend a neurological visit, and consider both imaging and EMG study. If your femoral nerve is involved, you can lose muscle bulk and strength over your thigh, and this can potentially be reversed. Not knowing the character of the "lump", would suggest at least a surgical consult also.
