I am 7 weeks pregnant. I don't know if that has anything to do with what is going on but I just wanted to get that out there just in case.
I just noticed a noticeable mass/lump about the width of a golf ball on my upper thigh on my left leg. You can see it poke out from the rest of my thigh. It is very painful to the touch. I didn't hit it on anything and there is no bruising. It constantly hurts. I didn't pull any muscles working out or anything. It just showed up yesterday. It hurts when clothing rubs up against it and it hurts like a mother if I push on it or lift my leg up. I thought it might be Meralgia Paresthetica which I know can be caused by pregnancy, but that doesn't have a lump associated with it.
What is going on? What do you think this may be? Where should I go to get this checked out?
