Swollen lump on inner tigh by walking?

Be eval by surgeon: Walking shouldn't cause lumps. A spontaneous mass or swelling on one thigh is bad and needs evaluation by orthopedics as it could be cancer, infection, hematoma, muscle tear, lymph gland, nerve tumor, vascular, on and on... Go to orthopedics. Don't wait. Better to be safe than sorry. Time often matters. ...Read more

Shingles?: Without being able to look at it, i would hesitate to attempt a diagnosis. That being said, if it is painful, and has a "blister" look about it, it could be shingles, which can be treated. Get it looked at soon as getting on the antivirals for it sooner would give a better outcome. If, of course, it is shingles. ...Read more

Hard lump on outter thigh left leg... 2 smaller ones on right outter leg... what could it be?

Hard lump on outter thigh left leg... 2 smaller ones on right outter leg... what could it be?

The good news is: most all the lumps under the skin of the extremities are benign. The most common are lipomas (benign fatty, soft tissue growths) dermatofibromas or neurofibromas. Dermatofibromas may be slightly pigmented/brownish. Sometimes neurofibromas can turn in cancers so they are sometimes removed. Other types of bumps include epidermoid cysts, keratosis pillars, etc. which can be distinguished by a doctor ...Read more

Shin splints: You could be experiencing shin splints. They can present as soreness to pain on the anterior (front) calf. Shin splints can occur after athletic type activities (walking/running) when a proper warm up or stretching is not done prior to the activity. Shin splints can also be caused when there is an imbalance in strength between the anterior (front) and posterior (back) calf muscles. ...Read more

I have two small hard unmovable and painless lumps on each upper thighs. A similar lump on left hip. Huge lum. behind stomach fat. Hurts when pressed?

I have two small hard unmovable and painless lumps on each upper thighs. A similar lump on left hip. Huge lum. behind stomach fat. Hurts when pressed?

Lipoma: Sounds like they may be lipomas which are benign encapsulated accumulations of fat. Many people have them and they do not require any intervention unless they are so large they are cosmetically unappealing or pressing on a nerve and causing pain. An examination by your provider can confirm this is the case. Very rarely is any additional testing needed to make this diagnosis. ...Read more

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?

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

A painful hard lump on the upper thigh, calves rash following. What should it be?

Painful lump: A painful hard lump in the thigh area is likely to be either a 'boil' (usually reddish/purplish in color), or a growing cyst (cysts, however, are not usually as tender as boils. The spreading rash to the calves is hard to explain and may represent a second problem. ...Read more

Went over on ankle, got swollen toe and ball of toe, numbness, sore ankle. Pain when walking. What could this be?

You state: If I am reading correctly that you "went over on ankle" - then you ask what could it be...sounds like you just told us you sprained your ankle. Why the toe would be swollen I am not sure, but an xray would be in order for a swollen toe. "Ball of toe" = not sure what you mean by this.) ...Read more

Lump on both sides of neck near the bottom, it moves when i touch it.?

Lump on both sides of neck near the bottom, it moves when i touch it.?

Neck lumps: If you're feeling lumps on both sides of your neck, they're probably cervical lymph nodes. Other neck lumps include sebaceous cysts, but it'd be uncommon for these to occur symmetrically. I'd recommend getting them checked out by your doc in the next 1-2 weeks - nothing urgent unless you're having fever, difficulty swallowing, or increasing pain. Then see your doc sooner. ...Read more
