The difference of about one inch leg muscles girth between both the sides is not indicative or any medical issue. This can be normal and is found in almost 10% or people.

The fibulas muscle seems more prominent on right leg. So this can be normal if that leg has had more use?
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 3 months ago.

Yes this can be normal due to muscle hypertrophy due to more use.
