Hi I'm 17 and I've had a large-ish lump on the top of my right thigh for a while now I've been too scared to see a doctor.
It's about the size of my palm and is uncomfortable to touch, it really hurts if it gets banged. It's been there for a while, I've been worried about it for about a year or so but 've avoided telling anyone untill quite recently when I broke down with a friend, who's said he'll come to the docotr with me. It's grown quite large quite quickly and now I'm worried people can see it if I wear jeans or trousers of any kind.
What should I do? It's very visible, I can't wear a bikini for fear of someone seeing it, and my leg is sometimes quite numb aroud it. Should I be worried about it?
