Lump on thigh, had sporting injuries that caused a bruise. if that incident may have anything to do with it?

Hello, I'm 18 years of age and have a lump on my right upper thigh, I have had it for several months and doesn't cause me any pain, it's just annoying as I wish to know what it could be. It's almost like there is a dent in my quadriceps around a third of the way down. Ages ago I had a sporting injuries that caused a bruise to develop in that spot, I wondered if that incident may have anything to do with it. Thank you in advance for a quick response.

Thanks for writing to us.
The palpable firm lump that you can feel on your thigh can be due to fibrosis of the hematoma you had on the same place long ago. This can be caused by scarring in a bruise. An FNAC will help in confirmation.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
