Do you think something is wrong here?

All of a sudden this week my daughter's right leg has become a full inch bigger than her left, it's very noticeable and it's freaking me out. It's like she has an extra pocket of fat hanging over her right knee....can you see it? Anyone else have this happen? I mean last week it was normal, this week it's not??

Does she act like it's sore? Favoring it at all?

Re: Do you think something is wrong here?

I can see what you're talking about, but I have no idea what to think.

Any redness or something that might be a bug bite?

None that I see, It's like her right leg just grew....because both of her thighs were 11" now her left one is 11" but her right one is 12"

Re: Do you think something is wrong here?

I'd go to the pedi just in case. Uneven legs and fat rolls can be a sign of hip problems. It is probably nothing but I'd still have it checked out.

I'd probably have it checked out just to be on the safe side. It's probably just her dominant leg and has more developed muscle uderneath or something

I would probably call and ask...

But my left leg is smaller than my right leg... I think that I do favor it because it has had knee surgery and stuff on it so I would want to make sure that it wasn't anything like that..
