Huge very dark purple bruise right thigh discovered 2 days ago and is getting bigger, no pain or tenderness feel a small knot under skin?

Bruise: You don't remember bumping into something? A large bruise without trauma is unlikely. The knot you feel is probably a blood clot under the skin that will dissipate on its own. The medications you listed should not cause your bruise. It will look worse before it looks better. If you think it was indeed spontaneous, you should really have your doctor check a CBC on you. ...Read more

Early cellulitis?: Only two things come to mind. An early skin infection (cellulitis) which has not completely developed.

Less likely, there could be an area of nerve damage in the skin causing very sensitive and noxious sensations to touch: a condition called dysesthesia. It could also be nothing. ...Read more

I have a large bump or mass just above my right thigh on the waist line. Almost the size of my fist. No pain, only sore if I poke at it a lot?

Likely a lipoma: Usually a mass like this which is that size and non tender represents a lipoma, a fatty benign tumor. For safety this should be evaluated by your physician. If a lipoma, it doesn't need to be removed unless it grows or becomes painful. For cosmetic purposes it can be removed at any time. Try to leave it alone and not to poke at it because they can become inflamed and tender. Good luck. ...Read more

Shingles tends to be extremely painful, but severity can vary. Outer right location suggest more Shingles. I would suggest a formal consult to confirm or to visit your doctor. ...Read more
