Our expert says:
If your one leg is slightly more swollen than the other one, (measure with a tape measure) and you have pain on moving your muscles, it may be safer to get a duplex doppler examination to exclude DVT, although most DVT's happen in the calves. Pain in the thigh can also be due to soft tissue injury or to referred pain from the back or to infection in the bone or bone disease. In any event I think you should see your doctor about this!
