Indentation in my lower thigh. I am not overweight or underweight.

I have an horizontal indentation on the lateral, lower edge of my thigh. It started at about 1 inch and has increased to about 2 1/2 inches in 3 months. No pain, discoloration, nodules or loss of range of motion. I am not overweight or underweight.

Hello.
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.

Dear Doctor, I last had a bone density scan a year ago which showed Osteopenia in my spine although hips were normal. I have an 8 history of eating disorders (mostly bulimia and only slightly underweight although irregular periods, until the past 19 months when things became more anorexic and BMI has been between 12.5-15 with no menstruation). My current concern is that following a fall a month ago I have pain in my coccyx which shows no sign of improving and I worry it may have 'crumbled' and that this is the beginning of me losing height. Is this likely? Many thanks for your help.
