Dear customer

Thank you for the quick reply & for attaching the two pictures.I have seen them.

The pictures you have sent & the symptoms you have described of having large painful lump in your inner thigh along with bruise near it can most likely be due to hematoma.

Less probable causes are:deficiencies in vitamins B12, C, K and folic acid can result in tissue or blood vessel weakness resulting in easy bruising,diabetes,side affect of certain medication,liver diseases like cirrhosis of the liver, hepatitis, platelet disorders.

Following is recommended for you:

  • Apply gentle heat with warm towels, a hot water bottle, or a heating pad. The heat is applied for 20 minutes at a time to promote absorption and repair.Hematoma will resolve by itself within few days.
  • For pain relief, take tab. Ibuprofen 400 mg from the counter.It is available as OTC without prescription.

Despite how they feel, hematomas are not typically cause for concern.Hematoma will resolve by itself within few days.

Please do not worry. There is nothing serious or dangerous about this.Also consult your doctor for examination & final diagnosis.

Thank you

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
