Large Lump On Inside Upper Rear Leg

Looks like an overgrown muscle -- feels like muscle as well. This photo is from rear, with him lying on his side. The bulge is on the right rear leg, so on the top. It's almost fist-sized but is palpable. No discomfort of pain and he's been running fine. Just seems weird. If the other side had it it would just look like he was all muscled up but this is noticeably bulging. Should I just leave it since it's not bothering him at all? Any idea what this is? Should I take him to the vet?

A dropped gracilis muscle. There should be some posts in the archives here on Greytalk, but you can also find articles here: https://www.google.com/?ion=1&espv=2#q=dropped%20gracilis%20muscle%20greyhound
