i have a red painfull lump on the top inner of my left leg, i noticed it a few days hand have been keeping an eye on it. last night however i was feeling a bit dizzy (which may or may not have anything to do with it) and have noticed this moring that the lump has gone a blackish purple color and seems a little bigger and still really angry. i have heard that many people get lumps in this area due to hair folicles and no not want to get it checked out if it is nothing to worry about. what do you reckon??? (its about the size of a finger nail) thanks jo

  • Well, is it a lump like a blood clot, in which case go to your doctor asap, or a red lump like a big blister that opened and turned into crust?

  • Maybe you need a dermatologist to check it for skin cancer.
