Muscle strain?: You may have a strained thigh muscle or tendon, most likely one of the inner quadriceps. If you feel pain or stiffness when you stretch and/or contract this area, you can be pretty sure that's what it is. Still, if you notice persistent soreness for a week or more, or if you notice swelling, heat or redness, you should see a doctor. Best wishes. ...Read more

I got hit on the inner thigh and sustained a pretty bad bruise, after about three weeks, the bruise is gone but now I have a sore hard bump there?

Hematoma...: What you describe is a hematoma. A hematoma is a collection of blood, usually clotted, outside of a blood vessel that may occur because of an injury to the wall of a blood vessel allowing blood to leak out into tissues where it does not belong. A large hematoma can sometimes take a couple of months to resorb, and rarely may need surgery to resolve it. ...Read more

I have redlines/looks like bruising outlinning my inner thigh veins on both legs. Its only on the veins no where else. Feels sore?

I have redlines/looks like bruising outlinning my inner thigh veins on both legs. Its only on the veins no where else. Feels sore?

Inflammation: Hard to answer without seeing in person, but the veins can be inflamed from standing for a long time, for instance on the job. When you are home, elevate your legs, apply a heating pad on a light to medium setting (but never sleep with it on you, can cause burns), or if you can take ibuprofen or naproxen (Aleve), do that. However it would be best to see your doctor for evaluation. ...Read more

Had vein laser ablation Tues. Upper rt. Inner thigh is bruised /red and throbs -tender some. Is this normal? Should I ice or heat it. Thanks Dr.

Had vein laser ablation Tues. Upper rt. Inner thigh is bruised /red and throbs -tender some. Is this normal? Should I ice or heat it. Thanks Dr.

Post laser ablation.: What your are experiencing is normal post laser ablation. The laser heats the vein or the tissue around the vein causing the vein to coagulate. This results in redness and bruising of the overlying skin. This takes about 5 to 7 days to occur and this is why you see bruising and feel the discomfort at this time. Wet warm compresses to the area and ibuprofen will help. ...Read more

Please take him to: His doctor. It sounds like it could be an abscess (infection), which may need to be drained and/or may need oral antibiotics. Meanwhile, you can have him apply warm compresses to the area, and take ibuprofen for pain. Also, please take his temperature, if you haven't already, and let the doctor know if he has a fever. ...Read more

Intense pain & tightening when lifting leg or walking. Inner/outer thigh, pubic area, lower back tender & painful to touch.?

Leg/back pain: With localizing pain I would consider blood clots (DVT), phlebitis (superficial vein inflammation), but the presence of back pain may indicate a radiating nerve problem (? disc) or kidney/pelvic infection. A thorough exam with labs would help isolate the cause. Could be serious condition. ...Read more
