Reoccuring mass in inner thigh. Prescribed aleve. Whats this?

About 4 weeks ago I had a sausage like mass in my upper-inner thigh. It did not hurt but it alarmed me a bit because I have never experienced it before. I saw a doctor and he said to take two Aleve and watch it. It went away a week later. Now I have the same mass only slightly smaller on the opposite upper-inner thigh. I worry about it. I am 39 years old. I exercise almost daily and try to eat healthy....not sure what this could be.

Hi and welcome to HCM.
Your doctor obviously thinks that this might be sme inflammatory process. But it sounds to me like subcutaneous lesion,kind of lipoma, or fibroma. ALso there is often found varicose veins or veins conglomerate. I suggest to do ultrasound with FNA to make this clear, but it wont be anything serious. Wish you good health.
