Patient discussion about thigh

Q. have had numbness on right thigh so weird comcerned what it might be

A. Concerning what could it be may be quite frightening… It all depends on your age, other conditions, life style and medical history.

Numbness may be due to damage to nerves: either nerve root in the spinal column or to the more peripheral nerves (e.g. pressure on nerves or damage to them during operation).

It may also result from diseases to the skin or systemic diseases, although then usually other signs and symptoms will suggest the cause.
