Commonly Asked Questions / Doctor’s Answers
Small Cysts on Thigh


About four days ago I felt a small lump (cysts) on my thigh (it’s about pea sized). It is located on the outside and towards the upper end. It is not to deep, and it only causes discomfort when I touch it. There is no skin discoloration. I run everyday (5 to 7 miles) and it seems that running might aggravate it. Have you heard of this before and if do you have any suggestions on getting rid of it? Thank you.

eCureMe’s Advice 1

It is possible that you may have had a little cyst develop on your thigh, aggravated by running. If it is a true cyst, than it probably won’t go away completely, especially if you keep aggravating it. There may be times that you can barely feel it because it has shrunk down and other times where you can hardly walk from the inflammation. You should have it examined to determine the true diagnoses and possibly discuss removal.

eCureMe’s Advice 2

If it is around a hair follicle, this is likely folliculitis or hair follicle inflammation and will resolve in time. Keep an eye on its size, and if you find that it is growing or that it becomes hard and intractable (see if you can move it around) then get it checked out sooner. Otherwise, it is likely to resolve itself. Another possibility is acneiform lesion.

eCureMe’s Advice 3

The small lump could represent several things: a bug bite, skin or hair follicle infection, sebaceous cyst, boil or carbuncle and much less likely a skin neoplasm (cancer). This will likely resolve in time, but if it becomes painful and is truly cystic (fluid filled), it can be incised and drained.
