Does anyone know what this night be?

On my right upper thigh, to the left, close to my crotch (sorry) lol... I've been having this weird pain.
You know how when you get a bruise and you press on it? Well, that's how it feels like. Some days, I'm limping because it hurts... It hurts the most when someone touches it! Ouchhhhhhhh!! It's been like this for about 3 weeks now! It's even slightly bigger then my other thigh.! Does anyone know what this might be?! I was thinking a sprain muscle?... I'm thinkin about going to the doctors to get it checked out. But I want to make sure it's nothing silly before I pay all this money!

  • 3 weeks is a long time for a muscle strain to still be making you limp.... and the location is odd... go get it checked out. That's all I can offer without being able to physically examine it myself, sorry.

  • Get to the doctor and quit putting it off.

  • Have you tried icing it? A pain like that could be a pulled muscle or even an infection. I am leaning towards an infection if you say you can't walk and it hurts that badly? Yeah, go to the dr.

  • Do you feel any knots in that area or any redness? 3 weeks is a long time for just a strain I would think. I'd see a doctor if I were you.

  • if it is an infection.... you DON'T want to ice it... just an FYI
    Could be a blood clot or some kind of hemotoma as well...

  • It's a little lump... Nothing too major. It's not red either!

  • A possible swollen lymph node? Also maybe what crafty said. Either way I still recommend seeing a doctor.
