In brief: Doctor can evaluate

Pains felt in the thigh area can be from problems located there, such as a pulled or strained muscle, or even a problem with the thigh bone.
Problems in the hip joint, or problems with nerves or blood vessels headed towards the legs, can first appear as thigh pains. Some medications that have muscle aches as a side effect can also appear as thigh pain. The doctor can evaluate to look for a cause.
