Traction radiculitis: Based on the info provided you could be irritating the lumbar nerve root which will either cause pain, pins and needles (paresthesias), numbness, and/or weakness.

Upper Leg Pain (Definition)

Orthopaedic surgeons (and others) typically use the term "thigh" to mean the area between the hip and the knee. They use the term "leg" to mean the area between the knee and the ankle.

Check it out: Most likely fatty tumor or fibrous tumor, less likely possibly femoral hernia. See a general surgeon. Sounds like nothing serious but in general if we can't get a tissue sample, we are not 100% sure of what it is. Don't lose sleep over it but get it checked out. ...Read more

Hard lump on outter thigh left leg... 2 smaller ones on right outter leg... what could it be?

The good news is: most all the lumps under the skin of the extremities are benign. The most common are lipomas (benign fatty, soft tissue growths) dermatofibromas or neurofibromas. Dermatofibromas may be slightly pigmented/brownish. Sometimes neurofibromas can turn in cancers so they are sometimes removed. Other types of bumps include epidermoid cysts, keratosis pillars, etc. which can be distinguished by a doctor ...Read more
