I have severe LB/glute pain primarily on left side. L I noticed a (fluid like) lump on sacrum bilaterally but larger on left. What could this be?

Get a scan: The differential diagnosis would include fat necrosis, partial or full disc herniation, sacrococcygeal mass, cutaneous tumors, and poorly exercised paraspinal muscles.

Pain in buttock: You probably developed a hematoma from the needle. This is a collection of blood which forms after a blood vessel is damaged. As a medical student we gave each other shots and drew blood and my arm and buttock was very swollen and tender. It does not sound like nerve damage. To hit a nerve you would have to go very deep. ...Read more

Sx:Low back pain, left sharp glute pain for 3 months. Worser in the morning or when sitting. Is this sciatica or some type of cancer?

Neither: At age 23, neither is likely. Sciatica is due to compression of nerve in low back, usually causes pain down the leg. It's rare at your age. Injury to coccyx can cause your symptom, as can muscle and joint injury there. For previously undiagnosed cancer to present in this fashion in a young man would likewise be VERY rare. ...Read more
