Well, it could be femoral artery, which you are feeling and
your pulse of blood that is surging through the artery.
It could be bruit in your femoral artery.
This may be due to a plaque in the artery. It occurs when fat, cholesterol, and other substances build up in the walls of arteries and form hard structures .You may need a vascular ultrasound for precise diagnosis.
Your doctor may suggest taking aspirin or another medicine to prevent blood clots from forming in your arteries.
Please consult your doctor for clinical checkup and get appropriate management.
