Hello, I'm due to have an ultrasound on my leg

Patient

Q: Hello, I'm due to have an ultrasound on my leg I'm a couple of weeks . My dr ordered it because he wasn't sure what was wrong with my leg. It's my thigh actually, I have 2 odd dents that have appeared since Xmas and it forms like a semi circular shape, which in the mirror looks like an oval shape. It's not quite a lump although feels slightly raised. I get dull aches when I run around , and up to end of Janurary I was hitting it hard at the gym.. Although dr thought id be in a lot of pain if it was muscle strain or sprain ! I'm getting worried because I keep thinking it's sinister! Dr said it didn't feel like a lipoma fatty lump because it wasnt moveable , I am scared it is cancer even though supposed to be rare. Any ideas of what it is ?? I'd be great full of any suggestions . Thankyou. Debbie
