The Small Lump In The Thigh Never Goes Away?
It’s been 3 months on my upper thigh there is a small, small lump the size of a green bean, it doesn’t itch it doesn’t get bigger but it doesn’t go away either, why … still
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to clarify, on which side exactly did the lump appear? Is it in the groin?
A small lump in the upper thigh that doesn't go away, nor does it cause itching or other complaints can be part of a skin tag (fibroepithelial polyp). This condition arises from excessive skin growth which is usually triggered by constant friction. Skin tags are benign, harmless, and do not require special handling unless they are enlarged and interfere with appearance. Not only on the thighs, skin tags can also appear on various other body parts, for example the armpits, groin, eyelids, neck, under the breasts, and so on.
Apart from skin tags, it could also be that the bumps on your upper thighs appear for other reasons, for example:
Skin infections, for example warts, folliculitis Skin tumors, for example cysts, Keloid lipomas (excessive growth of scar tissue after inflammation or injury) Lymphadenopathy (swollen lymph nodes), for example due to tuberculosis, HIV, lymphoma, leukemia --- lumps usually appear in the groin (the side of the thigh that is close to the genitals), and so on. Your condition should be checked directly to the doctor, given the fact that it has been going on for months. In general, a lump that does not increase in size is not dangerous. However, this condition still needs to be confirmed by more in-depth examination, for example, a tissue biopsy that originates from the lump. If deemed necessary, the doctor can refer you to a dermatologist for further treatment, for example by administering medication or even surgery.
At this time, you shouldn't manipulate the lump in any way. Always wear clean pants and bathe regularly. Avoid wearing pants that are too tight so that they don't cause excessive friction on your thigh area.
Hope it helps ..
