Is the hard lump on inner thigh due to chafing?

I have a hardened lump on the inside of my thigh, located within a stretch mark. Very tender but not extremely painful. I am prone to chafing - 10 hour shift days at work on my feet all day. Just healed up an infected chafe boil on my other thigh...but this is a hard mass. Related to chafing? Need to be concerned?
