Right Leg Anatomy
What kind of congenital hip anatomy would predispose one leg to become functionally shorter over time?
Soft, squishy lumps on back outer thigh about 3 inches above knee and on both legs. Dr said not in popliteal lymph node area and likely just anatomy?
Simple problem: You have given me a wonderful description of what we call lipomas. These are noncancerous fatty growths that can occur almost anywhere on the body. They cannot be transmitted from person to person so the fact you both have them is not any consideration. If they cause you pain, discomfort or are unsightly, they are easy to remove. They can grow so you may want to have them removed at some point. ...Read more
Why do I get pain in the lower side of right leg only when running? This happens almost everyday now. It's not a cramp. I have to stop & shake/hit it.
Dr tried placing epidural during labour four times but it never worked. It made my right leg numb once and left leg another time. Why didn't it work?
It was not placed: In the proper space. That is the epidural space.

Possibilities include cellulitis (infection), thrombophlebitis (blood clot) or even sciatica (a pinched nerve).

Good Afternoon. I have a dent on my right leg for a week its pretty big did not hit myself. DO they go away or if I should be worried?
Possible Sciatica: The nerves which supply feeling to your legs come out of the spine and come together to travel in a big nerve called the Sciatic nerve.
