Hello,
Thanks for the query.
This lump seems to be local collection of blood which has seeped in due to the blunt injury on your thigh.
There is only one way to treat it ,that is by way of surgical drainage.
Consult a surgeon of this.
I hope it helps.
Do let me know if there is any other concern.
Best of luck
Thanks
