There's been a small (non-itchy) bump on my left thigh for a few months. It's not discolored...I'm worried it could be a growth. Worth checking out?
Doctor can evaluate: A small non-itchy bump can be a wart, a flesh-colored mole, a molluscum, a scar, etc... If a person is otherwise young and healthy, the bump is unlikely to be a serious problem, but a primary care or dermatology doctor can evaluate and offer treatment.
See your doctor: Your doctor needs to examine these in person to he/she can see them live.

Bruise like rash on upper left thigh. Was itchy then found a 5in by 5 covered with little bruises and large ones by it. Is this serious?
Bruise: It is difficult to ascertain the nature of this rash just by description obviously, but it sounds to me as if you have what is called a "purpuric" rash along with scattered petechiae. There are many causes of this type of rash, but if they are occurring spontaneously then I would seek the care of a medical provider promptly for further evaluation.

Itchy bumps on my thigh, what could they be? Some turned into black bruises. Started about a week ago on my left thigh, now on my right and shoulder too.
Dermatitis: Sounds like you have a dermatitis (not otherwise specified) and an exam would define it more specifically. Most dermatitis like, itchy skin eruptions can be treated with a topical steroid and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) as an antihistamine (which can also help with the itch). If severe, then get derm eval. Best wishes.

I noticed white/pink patch on left leg lateral malleolus. It is neither painful nor itchy. Is it a concern? I am worried.
BIOPSY: Dermatology is, in large part, a visual diagnosis. That being said, anytime I am worried, or you, the patient, is worried, I biopsy the lesion. The exception is when the lesion is so easily diagnosed, which happens many times, a biopsy is not called for. Talk to your doctor. Sincerely, Dr. LatvaSee 1 more doctor answer
