There is a complaint in the form of a lump in the left thigh area that is small and is currently getting bigger and sicker, possibly it can be caused by a blockage of the skin's skin oil accompanied by inflammation. This lump is usually called a cebaceous cyst or atheroma cyst. These lumps occur when the glandular duct is blocked by dead skin cells or inflammation, so oil is blocked in it which eventually forms pockets at the bottom of the skin. the tip usually rises, such as comedonal acne or sometimes reddish or blue when accompanied by inflammation. bacterial contamination will cause inflammation and swelling, until it contains pus in it. However, all of this must be confirmed directly by your family doctor or your surgeon.
Some other conditions can also cause a lump in the thigh area, such as:
1. inflammation of hair roots
2. Lipoma or benign fat tissue tumor
3. granulation tissue for scars or inflammation
4. ganglion cyst or fluid-filled lumps around your joints
5. traumatic cyst, a cyst formed after trauma
6. skin tags, benign stemmed skin tumors
Because these complaints need to be ascertained from some of the possibilities above, then to ascertain the cause, it is necessary to consult directly with your family doctor or to your surgeon. The doctor will do a direct examination, usually by seeing or by supporting examinations such as aspiration examination (taking fluid from the lumps), the lump can be identified, and in general these lumps are harmless, but aesthetically disturbing. A small surgical procedure can be done to get rid of these lumps, so you feel more relaxed and not worried.
For now, several businesses you can do, such as:
1. Avoid holding the lump to prevent inflammation
2. keep your skin clean
3. avoid self-medication without doctor's supervision
