Patient: I have started getting hard purplish lumps on my inner and outer thighs. They differ in size but are generally painful. I can see most of them but I can also feel a few under the skin.i was wondering if they were veins of some sort or maybe cysts. They are all over an inch big and it’s really impacting my confidence. I’m 32, I don’t smoke or drink and I have no children and I’m just not sure what to do or how to get them removed.
