What is the cause of dent on the thigh while standing ?

What would cause a dent? I have an approximately 3 inch long dent that all of the sudden occur in my left thigh leg. There is no pain and I see the dent obviously while standing. I haven t seen a doctor because I ve done a lot of research on line and found out that there are people with the same problem and some consulted doctor but the doctor response is never seen it before. I exercise regularly by skipping rope. Is it cause dent in my thigh?

A muscular tear such as in the quadriceps can cause a defect in the tissue and thus a dent seen externally. These though tend to be painful. Alternatively, what you perceive to be a dent may actually be due to soft tissue lump (such as fairly common, benign lipoma, a fatty tissue lump) creating uneven contours.

Eiher way, having an Ultrasound scan by a Musculoskeletal Radiologist is my advice.
