Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
The indentation seems to be due to excessive fibrosis inside the thigh. may be some facia is getting fibrosed. The exact cause can be known only after an MRI scan.Since the indentation is increasing in size, even if it is not painful still you should get it investigated.
