Dent in left leg close to calf


It doesnt hurt or bother at all.. but there is a red discoloration (little circle like mark) where the indentation is… Not sure if I should be concerned but I have had this for a cple months now….Im not over weight or have ny health problems, Im 24 yrs old… Can you help?


  1. I too also have a new “dent” on my leg. It’s on my left quad and it doesn’t hurt and I don’t remember getting hit there. I can afford health insurance and I’m kinda worried. It’s been there for about a month. I am 23 and have slender body type. If you found out what caused your “dent”, will you please let me know?? Thanks.

  2. I’m not a physical therapist or doctor, but I would suggest just going to the doctors to get it checked out. If it turns out to be nothing, then that’s good. But it could turn out to be something more serious, in which case catching it early would be a definate advantage. So just to be safe, I would schedule a doctors appointment.
