Lump in thigh, under skin
I've noticed a small (b.b. sized) lump in the "fatty" part of my thigh- inner thigh, about halfway between the groin and the knee.
At first I thought the lump was on my skin- an ingrown hair or something- but it seems to be under the skin.
It's firm but not rock-hard, and seems to be slightly movable.
It's not painful or tender.
It's not visible; I can just feel it with my fingers when I press.
I've been looking up my symptoms, and it seems likely that this is a lipoma, although I've never had one before.
I also read that in rare cases cancer can present this way, but I'm not terribly concerned, because from what I read that's very rare, and lipomas are much more common.
I wonder if anyone else has ever had one of these, if they saw a doctor about it, and whether it eventually went away on its own, or got bigger, or what.
I'm wondering if I should go to the doctor, just to rule out serious causes, or if I should just take a watch and wait approach.
Any advice appreciated.
