Have small erasersize lump on inner thigh... Painless and has been getting bigger over last several weeks. What could this be? Plz Help!!

For months now, I have had a small lump on inner thigh near groin area.  I wrote it off as an ingrown hair since I often shave this area, however, I am a little concerned.  Most of my boils in the past have been painful or itched... not this one, its just getting bigger and each week seems to get darker in color.  It started like a redish color, now its purple almost brownish color to it.  it does not hav e a head and no swelling or redness around it.  I looked at some pictures when I googled my symptoms and it showed me pics of something called sarcoma which looks exactly like this on my inner thigh... what could be the possibilities here plz help!

If you think it is a sarcoma, go to this National Cancer Institute web site -
for the most reliable information -

http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/types/soft-tissue-sarcoma

And - get to a known sarcoma-interdisciplinary hospital ASAP!

Good luck.......
