Can wearing dansko clogs cause thigh and groin pain. I started on clogs 3 months ago, but this just started last week. Upper thigh is tender to touch?

Unlikely: I personally wear dansko clogs everyday and I do a lot of walking and standing. I have never experienced any pain in thigh or groin. If you are there may be some structural problem and you should at least see your primary care physician for evaluation. ...Read more

Found a hard pea size ball on the outside of my upper thigh on the larger tendon. Its tender and hurt a bit to rub it. Wondering could this be a clot?

No DVT: There are no deep veins on the upper outer thigh so there cannot be a DVT at that site. You can have a superficial vein that is swollen in that area or perhaps just a fatty tumor in the skin. Go to the doctor and have it checked out. ...Read more

Blood clot: Nausea does not mean you have a blood clot. The bruise or bump could be just that. Usually blood clots are in the lower leg, below the knee. Risk factors are family history, recent surgery, long plane trips or being sedentary for many hours, birth control pills and smoking. ...Read more

I have a infected boil on my right mid upper thigh. It drained last night and is red and tender to touch. It's now hurting to walk. Home treatment? Or

Antibiotics: While we recommend heat/warm compresses for infection and cold/ice packs for injuries, this is home treatment is only a temporizing measure, intended just for a day or two. After that, should you not be feeling better, and definitely if you are getting worse, it's to seek definitive medical attention eg evaluation & treatment as appropriate. Don't wait to get even worse as this could be deadly. ...Read more

I noticed a tender grape sized ball in my upper thigh area (near groin). I am a 19 year old female. Is it possible that this may be a femoral hernia?

I noticed a tender grape sized ball in my upper thigh area (near groin). I am a 19 year old female. Is it possible that this may be a femoral hernia?

Unlikely: If you can feel a distinct size, like a grape, it retains the same size no matter how you push on it, the chance of it being a hernia is remote. Most of these peanut to grape sized structures are benign lymph notes that are often noticed in the fold of the groin. ...Read more

Trauma?: If you are sure it is not from trauma (getting hit with ball, stick, or another player), it could be an area of Lactic Acid build up from overuse. Given the fact that it is big enough to be visible and it is tender, it deserves evaluation by an ortho/sports med physician, especially if it is getting larger. Though rare, occasionally tumors present this way (benign ; other). ...Read more

A sore flesh coloured lump. About the size of a finger nail has reoccurred on my upper thigh. It is moist and peeling. Could it be herpes?

Likely a wart: This is not herpes. If you have a photo -you could show that to a HealthTap doctor or even go see a doctor in the office, I'm sure they could tell you what it is. If you see a doctor in the office, they may even be able to take care of it then and there with cryotherapy for example. Herpes is painful and is characterized by red blister like rashes. It would be good to get more info about your case ...Read more
