I have a tearing pain in my right thigh which has now started shouting through my leg. I recently had a tattoo on my thigh and have since noticed that there are hard lumps under my skin
Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Any redness or swelling in the leg?
Customer: Pain comes no matter wether I’m sitting or standing. No redness or swelling
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I have a slipped disc, wear and tear and slight curvature of the spine

Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Sorry to hear about this

The pain you mentioned seems like a pain due to nerve root irritation

It can be from the spinal problem you are already suffering

Tattooing can also cause irritation in the nerve

Regarding the lumps on he thigh you need to have them examined

This could be some soft tissue lumps or fat accumulation under the skin

You can take Ibuprofen for pain till you have an examination by your GP

Please feel free to ask if you have any other question
