Are the lumps in my legs fatty tumors or what? I have several lumps/bumps under the skin around my upper thigh area. One is near my panty line, it is about the size of the tip of my thumb and hard but does not hurt. It's been there probably 8 or 9 years

Fatty

Fatty tumors (or lipomas) are usually not hard. They are usually soft and squishy. If you have a hard mass along your lower panty line that could be a chronically inflammed inguinal lymph node. Can't determine what they are through this venu. Recommend that a family doctor or dermatologist examine you and determine what the lesions are.

A painful hard lump on the upper thigh, calves rash following. What should it be?

Painful lump

A painful hard lump in the thigh area is likely to be either a 'boil' (usually reddish/purplish in color), or a growing cyst (cysts, however, are not usually as tender as boils. The spreading rash to the calves is hard to explain and may represent a second problem.

I have a lump on my inner upper thigh wgat can it be. Its nit painful only if I press on it?

It could be a lipoma

Lipoma
If it is soft and squishy, it could be a lipoma. This is a benign tumor of the adipose tissue. It is not always necessary to remove these. They are common. There are other things this could be as well. If it continues to grow, please seek medical help.
