The Shape Of The Left Thigh Is Smaller Than The Right?
Good morning, why is my left thigh smaller than the right? Previously, about 2 months ago I had an accident and my knee. Hit hard enough that I could not walk. But now it’s normal to walk. Is there anything serious about my complaint

Previously, additional information is needed relating to your complaint such as whether there is pain in the left or right thigh? Are there any limitations on the movement of the thigh joint? Are there any signs of inflammation such as swelling, redness or bruising?
Related to your complaints, about the condition of your thighs that are not as big as the left and right should be done a physical examination directly with the nearest doctor to make sure.
Verifying it by doing a direct examination is highly recommended, because the doctor will assess whether there are significant abnormalities in the part of the body that you are complaining about.
For information, the smaller body muscles are also called muscle atrophy. This condition can occur in people who do not move for a long time such as nerve injury that causes paralysis, chronic diseases, disorders of the bones, post surgery and so on. Someone who does not mobilize or move for 2 weeks, then within that time period, especially the muscles of the muscles of the limbs will shrink and shrink. If you experience trauma beforehand and cause difficulty moving or walking for 2 weeks or more, then the thigh and leg muscle mass can experience atrophy so that it looks smaller.
While the enlargement of a part of the body can be caused by inflammatory reactions, tumors, lymph node disorders and infections.
To find out certainly requires a direct evaluation and various other supporting examinations.
But you don't need to worry, if there are no other complaints that interfere with your bodily functions and daily activities, then that tends to be normal. Discuss and do an examination with the nearest doctor to confirm your condition directly.
Thus the information that I can convey, hopefully helps
