I have developed a large very hard lump on my outer right thigh, it is big and has an indent underneath it, it does not hurt but looks odd?

Sounds: Like an infected hematoma or sebaceous cyst. If there are red streaks, it means that infection is not controlled. You might need drainage of the area and antibiotics. You must show this to a doctor now for possible emergency treatment. ...Read more

Hard painless lump under skin on thigh. No pain, circular, large (lil bigger than a nickle), no discoloration/head/ripple/visual deformity, see a doc?

If it is soft,: Mobile fluctuant or slightly dense, and does not hurt then it's most likely a lipoma. If you decide to have a healthcare professional look at it, that should confirm it. Of course there are other bad things that could cause a well defined lump on bone or under skin. Thanks for using HealthTap. ...Read more

What can cause a red, large, hard lump under the skin on the outer region of the upper right thigh?

What can cause a red, large, hard lump under the skin on the outer region of the upper right thigh?

A few things: If a "red skin lump " is tender, has surrounding redness and enlarging, it may be a skin abscess from a bacterial infection. The body can sometimes "wall" these off without any treatment. A doctor performed incision and drainage may cure these +- antibiotics. Its better to see the doctor early rather than wait to see what your body may do. ...Read more

First noticed reasonably large, hard lump on lower leg after injury (gouge taken out of leg) 7 years later, it's still there. Could this be a problem?

First noticed reasonably large, hard lump on lower leg after injury (gouge taken out of leg) 7 years later, it's still there. Could this be a problem?

Not necessarily: It's difficult to say based on the info you provided. As is the lump in the deep muscle, superficial skin or bone. If it's in the bone, it could be related to a bone callus. If its the deeper muscle, it could be myositis ossificans, which is a calcium deposit in the muscle after truama. Skin wise, that could be a hypertrophic amongst other things. Usually are only problems if create pain. ...Read more

I have just a large red lump on my leg, hard to the touch and very itchy, and very large. Swollen and red. Should I be alarmed?

I have just a large red lump on my leg, hard to the touch and very itchy, and very large. Swollen and red. Should I be alarmed?

Have it seen: It is difficult to diagnose issues with the skin without having them seen by a physician. As a "very large, swollen, red lump" is not normal on the leg it would be a good idea to have a physician look at it. The fact that the area itches would make me suspicious of possibly it starting out as an insect bite; however, a secondary infection requiring antibiotics is certainly possible. ...Read more

I got into a car accident. I have a large bruise on my leg that keeps getting bigger and had a hard lump under skin. Its been growing every day?

I got into a car accident. I have a large bruise on my leg that keeps getting bigger and had a hard lump under skin. Its been growing every day?

The bruise =bleeding: & if there is a collection of blood called hematoma, the discoloration always get bigger & many colors. The lump = a fibrosis of the clot, the body usually cleans them up. But it takes time. May get smaller & go away, or you are left with a permanent lump of undetermined size. Just be patient, there is no serious thing going to happen. It will just sit there. Ice @ first, after 3-4 days, heat. ...Read more

What this hard lump on the outside of my thigh?

Cyst or tumor: A hard lump on your thigh is most likely a cyst or a benign tumor, such as a fibroma.

If the lump has been there a long time, has not changed size and is not painful, you can just "watch" it. If it has appeared recently or has enlarged, then a surgeon should remove it. A pathologist will then determine if it will be of future concern. ...Read more
