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. ...Read more

Hard, 1cm round lump under skin front upper thigh unchanged for 7 years. Is it cancer? Female age 35.

Hard, 1cm round lump under skin front upper thigh unchanged for 7 years. Is it cancer? Female age 35.

Probably not!: A 1cm lump that has not changed for 7 years is very unlikely to be cancer! Why? Because cancer grows, especially if it is not treated. What you describe sounds like a benign mass or cyst. An ultrasound and/or biopsy would give you a diagnosis, but it might not be necessary. Ask your primary care provider to take a look at this next time you're in. And read about lipomas to see if that fits! ...Read more

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. ...Read more
