Customer Question
I am 41 and female...
I am 41 and female. I have two or three rubbery lumps deep in my upper (quite high), inner thigh. They are making the skin bulge out a little, although they are fairly deep. I can move them around if I really try but they are painful and are radiating pain up into my groin. If they are lipomas, should they be causing this much pain? Is this something that will need to be biopsied?

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

They can be lipomas.

However they can also be neurofibromas.

Or they can be myomas arising from thigh muscle.

All these are usually benign condition.

They can press on the nerve endings causing pain.

I think you should see a general surgeon for a clinical evaluation, also may be removal for confirmation.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

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.
