Top 2 Thigh Deformity Causes

  1. 1.Femoral Shaft Fracture

    A femoral shaft fracture is a break anywhere along the long, straight part of the femur (thighbone) known as the shaft. Since the femur is the longest, strongest bone in the body, it is fairly difficult to break it (car crashes account for the most femur fractures).

    You are likely feeling extreme, severe pain in the impacted leg and should go directly to the emergency room via ambulance. From that point, your doctor will determine how to proceed (usually, surgery is needed followed by a long recovery period).

    Rarity:
    Rare
    Top Symptoms:
    abnormally high heartrate, constant upper leg pain, thigh pain, severe thigh pain, swollen thigh
    Symptoms that always occur with femoral shaft fracture:
    inability to bear weight immediately after injury, thigh pain, severe thigh pain, pain when touching the thigh, swollen thigh, constant upper leg pain
    Urgency:
    Emergency medical service

  2. 2.Fibrous Dysplasia of Bone

    This is a genetic condition where part of a bone develops incorrectly using the wrong type of materials (fibrous instead of bony tissue), causing a weak area of bone that is prone to fractures. This process begins before birth, and the cause of the gene mutation is not fully known.

    You should visit your primary care physician who will confirm the diagnosis with X-Ray. Surgical treatment is often necessary to stabilize the bone.

    Rarity:
    Rare
    Top Symptoms:
    spontaneous hip pain, spontaneous bone pain, pain in one thigh, lump below the skin on the chest
    Symptoms that always occur with fibrous dysplasia of bone:
    lump below the skin on the chest, spontaneous bone pain
    Urgency:
    Primary care doctor
