In brief: Many possible causes

Much more info is needed to know what might cause this.
Hamstring strain can do it. So can a pinched nerve in the lower spine. So can piriformis strain in the lower part of the buttock. A tumor in the femur is unlikely, but could cause thigh pain. Even early shingles could do it. The only way to know is to get a medical exam.
