A thigh lump may be a result of an infection , an injury or rarely a benign or malignant tumor. Depending on the cause, lumps may be single or multiple, soft or firm , painful or painless. They may grow rapidly or may not change in size. You may also have other symptoms, depending upon the cause of your thigh lumps,
Thigh lumps due to infections in or near your leg may appear as boils or abscesses. Traumatic causes of thigh lumps can include minor injuries such as bug bites or severe injuries that can produce a localized hematoma.
Most lumps on the thigh are from trauma or benign causes. In rare cases, however, a thigh lump can be the presenting sign of an aggrassive cancer called a Soft Tissue Sarcoma [STS ]
