User avatar sounds as if this is a cyst. Can you manipulate this "bump"? Does it seem to be "attached"? Cysts in this area is actually quite common and quite often is nothing to worry about. I do not see a connection between your leg pain and this bump.

thanks for replying. Yes the lump seems to be attached and does seem to hurt if poked or pushed .
