Hard, 1cm round lump under skin front upper thigh unchanged for 7 years. Is it cancer? Female age 35.

Hard, 1cm round lump under skin front upper thigh unchanged for 7 years. Is it cancer? Female age 35.

Probably not!: A 1cm lump that has not changed for 7 years is very unlikely to be cancer! Why? Because cancer grows, especially if it is not treated. What you describe sounds like a benign mass or cyst. An ultrasound and/or biopsy would give you a diagnosis, but it might not be necessary. Ask your primary care provider to take a look at this next time you're in. And read about lipomas to see if that fits!

Get checked!: Severe pain is always scary! Sometimes it ends up being a temporary minor problem, other times it can be serious. Pain in that area could indicate a hernia. If there is pain with a hernia that may mean it is incarcerated (strangulated), which is serious. See a doc quickly. If the pain does not resolve promptly, worsens, he has fever, vomiting go to an ER!

Muscles: A late teenager with aches and pains in the legs and knees should evaluate his level of physical activity and whether too much was pursued too soon. Exercise and sports should be undertaken as gradually increased activity within a stepped up program; to allow the soft tissues to gradually adjust and strengthen. If problem persists, a doctor's evaluation is in order.

Periodic front hip/ upper thigh (groin crease) pain w movement day after alcohol consumption. Causes?

Kidney stone: From the timing, it sounds like a kidney stone. There is some association between alcohol and kidney stones, though not conclusive, but the idea is that the increased urine output from alcohol causes dehydration, which promotes kidney stone formation. The hip/groin is the classic referred pain area for "renal colic", as it's called.
