Lump on my thigh the size of a regular M and M. Should I be worried?

I just noticed it. It's about the size of an m&m and hurts when i touch. I thought maybe it's a pimple but it hasn't broken out yet and it's been there a few days.

  • Try warm compresses for a while and see if that helps bring it out. If it's still bothering you over the next couple of days, give your doc a call

  • Could be a cyst. But if you are conserned or it doesn't go away. Go to a doctor.

  • Sounds like a boil. They can be very painful, but not necessarily dangerous. I would try to book an appt with your regular doctor to see what they think will need done. Sometimes they can lance it right in the office and you're done messing with it.
