A few weeks ago I noticed a bump on my right thigh. Just a bump, slightly below the surface and slightly sensitive to the touch.
I decided it was worth a visit to the doctor. This led to a visit with the ultrasound tech.
The good news, the lump is an old hematoma (a.k.a. bruise).
The bad news, there are actually a handful of lumps and bumps in that thigh. Looking at the ultrasound was like a battlefield (if said battlefield were black and white and grainy).
These lumps will go away (supposedly) on their own, but if I want I can help the cause with heat. Which I might do eventually.
Now, you may be wondering how a person could obtain so many lumps from old hematomas.
How does one obtain such lovely bruises?
It's easy really. Get a horse to kick you in the thigh.
It works every time.
Excuse me while I go find a heating pad for my thigh.
