    What causes a lump on the inner thigh?

Posted on Mon, 24 Oct 2016 in Lump
Question: how do I get all my Dr's to listen to me? I've told them about a lump in my inner thigh, it get sore and hard but if
I put heat on it, it calms down. I'm scared it's a blood clot. it's been there since I got out of icu in july.

Brief Answer:
Hello. This doesn't sound like a blood clot

Detailed Answer:
Hello. With a DVT the leg swells and there's pain, and it doesn't calm down with the application of heat. That's not to say there's nothing going on here.

If I were your doctor, I'd get a MRI of the thigh to check for a hematoma or a muscle tear.

Please let me know if you need any more information.
