Bump on inner thigh, no pain, soft. What could this be?

I noticed a bump on my right inner thigh maybe 4-5 days ago. I noticed it because it felt bruise-like. About 2 days after that I decided to check around to see if there was something similar somewhere else, I found another one on my left inner thigh, but I think it was there before the one I found first, because it s slightly bigger. Neither of them really hurt anymore, but the left one has gotten slightly bigger. It s under the skin and feels like there may be a little bit of liquid since the upper part is a bit soft, but the rest is stiff. Both are oddly an oval shape. What could this be? It s worrying me.

Thanks for choosing helthcare magic .

With the desription you have give i am suspecting it to be a lipoma . Lipoma means a localised collection of fat tissue which basically is a harmless condition .

It can be removed by simple excision . usually done for cosmetic reasons or in case of any secondary complications.

Otherwise no other treatment is needed

But it is not possible to arrive at a definite diagnosis without a proper physical examination

hence i suggest you meet a surgeon and rule out other causes
