calcium deposits - Hard know on left upper thigh

Asked by Unregistered on Thu 03, Apr 2008 07:58am

I fell out of the ceiling onto my garage floor in Nov. I now have a hard knot on my left upper thigh. I was told this is a build up of calcium deposits. Is there anything I can do to make these go away?

Hi, I apologize for the delay in posting a response to your query. The appearance of a "hard-knot" on your thigh after local trauma is probably because of the healing process. A hematoma or a blood collection may have heveloped within your thigh, and this lead to deposition of fibrosis, and perhaps calcium. If a hard knot is your only symptom, then maybe you should adopt a conservative "wait and watch" approach. With the passage of time, the scar tissue will resolve. You may use local application of warm water (using a bottle or a bag) and see if it helps. Gentle stretching exercises too can be beneficial. I would not prescribe any medications at this stage. If you have pain, fever, etc, please consult your local doctor.
