hey there im james, ill be 20 in a week. anyways, a few years ago (dont remember exactly) in early high school i had this weird growth kinda thing un my quad muscle. it felt just like a bruise (painful to pressure) but it was definately something solid in my leg sitting possibly on top of the quad muscle and it was blue. solid as in, i could sort of grab at it. i had it scanned by a specialist and he said a bunch of stuff, all that i remember now is that he said it was like a benign tumor and it didnt have to be removed unless i wanted it to be. since then it has grown slightly, and now branches off into my hip area (the branched off part is really thin, like a vein, which makes me wonder). could this possibly be something else? i would of taken pictures but i cant see the color anymore ever since ive put on a few pounds (which leads me to think that its under the fat and either in or on the muscle). oh yea, and im guessing it may have been caused by impact of some sort (i got hit there really hard by a knee multiple times in jr high, when it may have started, because i was on the wrestling team)
