    Probably normal.

    You need to be more specific in your post:
    -What generation macbook pro is it?
    -What are you doing on the machine when it happens?
    -What version of OS X are you running?
    And any other information which you think might be useful.

    I'll take a stab in the dark here, but you just bought your MBP a few days ago and tried putting it on your lap while watchin youtube/some porn. After a few minutes, your left thigh became pretty hot and you noticed the enclosure on the left side getting hot.

    If that is the case, it's perfectly normal, aluminum conducts heat a lot better than most plastic cases other manufacturers use, therefore heat from the processor, which is located on the left hand side of the computer is being transfered to the body of the computer, making it feel hot. It is not a problem, nor is it abnormal.

    What do you mean by heating a lot. What temperatures is it reaching? Download and install the iStat pro widget and report back with temperatures. Also, open up activity monitor, sort by all processes, then by CPU usage, see if there is a runaway process heating things up.

    All perfectly normal temps. Except in the very rare cases of manufacturing defect, you don't have to worry about heat on your MBP. It's quite normal for temps to be even much higher than yours, depending on the workload at any given point in time. Your MBP would automatically shut down if temps really got too high, to prevent damage. As long as that's not happening under normal workloads, you don't have to worry about temperatures.
