Show your doctor: or dermatologist as this can be many things, from a cyst to lipoma and more. You may need a biopsy but without looking at it and feeling it I have no way of knowing. Hope that helps ...Read more

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

What is this  smaller hard lump in my upper thighs that only hurts when applied pressure. it is very hard and has been there for a few weeks.

Thigh Lump: This could be several things. It could be a cyst or a collection of fat known as a lipoma. It also could be an inflamed lymph node. It is probably a good idea to get it evaluated by a physician to see what it is since it is new and tender. ...Read more

Needs attention: A painful lump needs attention. The most likely possibility is an abscess which needs to be drained. But there are other possibilities. She should see a doctor. ...Read more

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
