I agree you should get to your doctor. I went a little freaky when I found a lump [painful] in my outer labia, but after hours on the net I am satisfied that I probably have a sebacious sweat gland cyst. Sounds terrible but apart from being quite painful - now, it is not so bad. As a breast cancer survivor who is suffering more from the long term effects of chemotherapy than the cancer surgeries, I felt sure mine must be a tumour.
I am not happy but relieved that mine was probably caused by my sticking to a diet to relieve colitis, one of the side effects of chemotherapy poisoning [in my case]. Diet changes can create these things as I discovered around three a.m. this morning.
You may have a cyst. Try not to get upset until you get medical advice. And good luck.

I also have a lump in my right thigh......some people at work say that it might be a froze muscle.....but it seems like it is getting bigger.........it has no pain at all....just concerns me, it is oblong shaped
My grandmother has recently discovered a lump in the middle of her left thigh. It produces no pain not even with manipulation and her orthopedic consult said that it was within the muscle. She has gone for an MRI, but I am not convinced that this will show much. Does this sound similar to what you have been experiencing? It is long shaped, but the size has not increased or decreased. She recently lost her husband to stomach cancer and she is scared that this is some type of bone cancer. My gut tell me that this is not the case. I am a M.D., but this is not in my area. I would love to hear any advice you have.
Sounds like a hernia to me! Easy for them to go in and take out. I had a double hernia operation a couple years ago. But I would go to your doctor and let them know that you have a lump in your groin. Have them check both sides if your doctor does think it's a hernia cause sometime's where there is one there is another on the other side.
I just found a oblong lump on top of thigh. Doesn't hurt I recently was tested on right arm for Tb. No lump appeared on arm an week later I found the lump on right thigh . Any info appreciated.
