Is a leg growth something to be worried about?

Patient

Q: I have two lumps on my left inner thigh below the skin about 6-8 inches below the hip line. One about 7-8 cm wide and about an inch below a 4-5 cm lump. Not really painful except when I press around on it. The edges are fairly distinct and you can see the large lump visually. I do not have a doctors appointment for a few weeks (he is out of town) and my family is worried and wants me to get seen sooner. Are these lumps something to be worried about or can I wait (I noticed them about a month ago and they have mostly stayed the same size, the bigger one may be a tiny bit larger)
