Lump On The Left Thigh?
At night, I want to ask my mother in her 47s, there was a lump in her left thigh, her features were not mobile, the surface was slippery, pressed without pain, before she had been in surgery but she reappeared, please explain and have to do it again. Thank you.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Lumps experienced by your mother can mean a variety of things, including are:
Lipoma or protrusion of fat
Enlarged lymph nodes
As for the characteristics that you mentioned, these characteristics still need to be clarified again because to know that the possibility of a lump that is malignant or leads to cancer usually has a hard, fixed or irreversible characteristic, irregular shape, rough, enlarged quickly, pain, and oozing fluid or blood. What your mother has is characterized by a smooth and painless surface that indicates a non-malignant characteristic, but also has a malignant characteristic that cannot be moved. That is why further investigation is still needed to confirm this.
Therefore, our suggestion is to have your mother consult a surgeon so that further examinations can be done directly. The surgeon may later request a biopsy if necessary to determine exactly where the lump came from, which in turn will also affect the determination of the treatment.
Meanwhile, there is no need to worry too much, and since the cause is still unclear, there are no specific things you can do independently and consult your mother immediately to the doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
