Re: Fast Growing "Thing" on Leg (What is this?)

That sounds like a skin tag, sometimes called a skin polyp. They are usually harmless, but the can sometimes become swollen due to friction.

I would guess that all your walking irritated it, and now it's swollen up. If you are going home within a few weeks, make an appointment to have the polyp removed after you go home.
