What are the symptoms of cancer and purple blotches on the back of your thighs?

What are the symptoms of cancer and purple blotches on the back of your thighs?

Sarcoma: This would be sort of rare, but certain types of sarcoma (kaposi's sarcoma and angiosarcoma) can cause purple discoloration of the skin. If it is an early cancer, these can be the only symptoms. I should emphasize that most purple skin splotches are not cancerous. If your doctor is suspicious, a biopsy can be helpful. ...Read more

Large mass on the inside of the thigh recently biopsy that came back malignant. What type of cancer is likely?

Any kind: I would guess sarcoma, melanoma, or any other soft tissue or skin malignancy. That said, it could be anything starting in the area or metastatic to the skin/subcutaneous tissue or to a local lymph node from somewhere else. Please wait for the final diagnosis to be made and make sure you see a specialist with expertise in the field. I truly wish you the best. Fight well and God bless. ...Read more

Understandable: Cancer of any kind is tough to deal with and stressful. Stress affects your feelings of well being and your desire for sex. Thyroid especially affects your energy level. Support her and be patient, make sure she gets good medical care. Sometimes even when cancer treatment is successful an antidepressant is needed. ...Read more

I have a mole on my thigh and i'm worried that it'll turn into cancer. What kind of tests do I need?

Biopsy or removal: If you have a mole that is worrisome for cancer, it needs to be removed or biopsied. Most moles are small enough that the biopsy is a removal of the mole. The mole will then be sent to pathology to be tested. ...Read more

I have a small black bump on my arm pits and another one on my inner thigh could it be a sign of cancer it's small and black in both places?

Suspect these: I suspect that these may be either comedones (blackheads) or sebaceous cysts. However, it is possible that they could be abnormal moles or even a type of skin cancer called melanoma. It is impossible to tell for sure without seeing it in person or at least seeing a picture. Have your doctor give it a quick look. ...Read more

Cluster of tiny flat spots like freckles under skin on thigh, started reddish and turned light brown. Is this cause for concern re skin cancer?

Spots: It's difficult to state with 100% confidence or accuracy without looking at an individual lesion, however if there is any change in size, color or shape of any lesion especially any new lesion which was not present before, it is important that you visit a dermatologist for further evaluation as it may possibly need a skin biopsy to rule out skin cancer. ...Read more

Can a full spine mei detect cancer in left hip or buttocks or thigh area?

Can a full spine mei detect cancer in left hip or buttocks or thigh area?

Spine MRI: When we look at the spine with MR it tends to be focused on just the spine. It might catch the buttocks or hip but definitely not the thigh. The MR coils have to really be aimed at a part to give good images. If you have concerns about other areas please let your doctor know. If you are having pain that goes from back to hip to thigh it might be all from the spine....really talk to your doc! ...Read more

What to do if I have a hardened lump on my left thigh, near my groin, is it cancer?

What to do if I have a hardened lump on my left thigh, near my groin, is it cancer?

Possible, unlikely: Need more information. How long has it been there? Painful? Growing? Any others? Drainage? Other symptoms that you may not think related (growth on penis or testicles, difficulty urinating) may be connected. A blocked sweat gland (cyst) or an enlarged lymph node for benign reasons is much much more common. See your primary doctor, get ultrasound, and see a surgeon. Good luck! ...Read more

Upper Leg Pain (Definition)

Before answering this question, it would be better to define what exactly is meant by the term "upper leg". Orthopaedic surgeons (and others) typically use the term "thigh" to mean the area between the hip and the knee. They use the term "leg" to mean the area between the knee and the ankle. Thus, it is important to specify whether we are discussing pain just below the hip or ...Read more
