Have lump in thigh, hurts when moving. Changed to Lutera birth control pill. Any suggestions?

I have a lump in my thigh. It s been there about 2 weeks now. Inner thigh about 4 inches above knee . It only hurts when Im moving and the muscle is contracting, but its not a pulled muscle. I ve been an athlete my entire life and this feels different. It s in one spot about 2 by 1 and its almost as if I can feel the round mass in there when im moving, bit not when I touch it. When I touch it, it just feels like pressure. 3 weeks ago I switched birth controls too. I am now on Lutera oral contraceptive . I am waiting to see if it goes away or not.. I m not one to just rush to the doctors. Any suggestions??

Thanks for writing to us.
The firm lump in the muscle that you can feel is likely to be due to a fibroma or a myoma. It can be an area of fibrosis after an hematoma or an injury. An MRI scan will help in the proper diagnosis. It is not likely to resolve spontaneously without a treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
