Question: Inner Thigh Lesions for years, multiplying.

 darkroom213 - Mon Dec 07, 2009 2:16 am

I am a 21 year old girl. I have had two lesion bumps on my inner thigh for years. I'd say four years. They are flesh colored and pearly small, with a crease down the center. In just the past year I'd say they are gradually more of these pearly things that appear, fainter down the thigh on both sides. They go from tiny to a little bigger. But they only appear where the other ones are on the left leg, basically they are symmetrical on my legs. They are very faint and not too noticable except for the original two which jut out from the leg more, more like a flesh toned mole. They don't hurt at all. But I am freaking out, and think I'm dying.
Is this HPV? Herpes? Cancerous moles? Ah.
Tell me I'm wrong. I need to go to the dermatologist this week?

User avatar Hello,Your condition seems like molluscum contagiosum,which leads to flesh coloured,or pearly bumps with a central umbilication.This is not serious and eminently treatable by removal,curettage or cryo.This is not malignant.The lesions can remain for longas it is or become more.They can spread and children are more vulnerable.Do show your dermatologist and get over your worries.Best wishes.
