Lipoma: There are many different things this lump could be. Being that you have had cancer before it would be a very good idea to have it checked by your doctor. It is probably something benign like a Lipoma. I feel it is important to get an accurate diagnosis so you and your doctor can decide how to treat it. ...Read more

Very likely benign: Whenever I hear about a pea-sized lump I am worried about an abnormal lymph node, but there are no worrisome lymph nodes in your thigh. In all likelihood this is a fluid-filled cyst, a fatty growth (lipoma), or a more fibrous growth called a dermatofibroma. All are benign; nothing needs to be done unless it grows or becomes discolored/painful, etc. VERY rarely, a cancerous tumor can begin this way ...Read more

Cysts: Cysts usually start from a clogged hair follicle. The dead skin and oil have nowhere to go, so the follicle swells and fills up with the material. These are harmless, although they can rupture under the skin resulting in inflammation, pain, tenderness, and possible drainage. It is possible that this is the cause. ...Read more

See a doctor.: It seems that you've suffered a traumatic injury. It may be simply a bad bruise, but i wonder if you've experienced something more serious like a tendon injury or rupture. Get examined so you don't have to worry - and so that you can become for comfortable! in the meantime, put an ice pack over the area. Good luck. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

What to do if I have a hardened lump on my left thigh, near my groin, is it cancer?

What to do if I have a hardened lump on my left thigh, near my groin, is it cancer?

Possible, unlikely: Need more information. How long has it been there? Painful? Growing? Any others? Drainage? Other symptoms that you may not think related (growth on penis or testicles, difficulty urinating) may be connected. A blocked sweat gland (cyst) or an enlarged lymph node for benign reasons is much much more common. See your primary doctor, get ultrasound, and see a surgeon. Good luck! ...Read more
