Yes! I'm here. Stanley cup comes first. Sorry!
Just to put you mind at ease, the vast majority of lumps like what you are describing, are lipomas, which are benign lumps of fat tissue.
The fact that it moves and becomes visible when bending, is an indication it's a lipoma.
The thigh is one of the common sites along with the forearm and trunk.
Do not associate the leg pain radiating from the Sacroiliac Joint with the lipoma.
Lipomas are generally unsymptomatic and if any pain is experienced it would be localized.
I'd say, go back to your routine, do whatever you normally do and just wait for the ultrasound results.
I had a lipoma removed by excision years ago on my upper back, close to my shoulder, strictly for cosmetic reasons.
Hope this helps, but please note that my comments are not intended as a replacement for medical advice.
Thank you for your response. I went to the doctor today and she's ordered an MRI. The lump is on my muscle not on my bone. She says the chances of it being cancer are very slim because muscle cancers are very rare. I am healthy and very active so I'm very concerned.
Hi Lily, your doctor is probably right with her assessment.
Best of luck and I hope you stay healthy and active for a very long time.
Have a great day!
With your lipoma were you sent for a biopsy?
I'm not sure, I suppose it was done all at the same time; everything went so fast. From the start, I was told it was nothing to worry about.
My doctor made a small incision, left me there for a while, came back and said something like "we're good to go", "this will be over in no time" and
"you'll be able to go back to your routine" tomorrow, but avoid anything to strenuous for a while". About 45 minutes later or less I walked out of the hospital with just a light "stitch" feeling at the site of the lymphoma.
I wish all medical procedures were that smooth!
I hope mine is as smooth as yours! But as for symptoms, you say it sounds a lot like a lipoma? And if there is no hereditary genes of cancer in my family and a muscle cancer is extremely rare the odds are in favour of a lipoma correct?
Lily, you're overthinking all this! you'll be fine. Everything points to a lipoma.
Do you stress easy? I suggest yoga & meditation to start. It could be the best investment of your time. Seriously! Your life will become so much better.
If you can't get into meditation on your own (it's always easier in a group setting), checkout YouTube video clips or go to the brain wave generator website.
