Help please

I woke up may 24th with what i thought was muscle pain in my inner thigh just above my knee. I tried rubbing it out but a day later it flared up. Feels like a lump of some kind under my skin its painful to touch or bend my knee the area is red. And when i touch the area it turns white for a sec then red again. It hasnt gone away and Ive tried iceing it ive tried a shower. Also Ive been taking ibuprofen for the pain but it doesnt seem to be getting better. Im not sure what it could be. The day before this occured I had walked around a alot at a convention then ate a hamburger. So im not sure whats causing this or if I should go to a doctor or just wait it out. Im starting a new job soon and I dont wanna to have to deal with this while trying to focus on learning my new job. Can some one please help me.
