I have a medium to small lump right above the left side of my ankle on my left leg. It is not painful at all. Any ideas of what it is?

Large egg size/shape lump very deep inside my left upper inside leg/thigh. No pain, but feels like i can move it around. Fatty tumor or what? Remove?

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
