Near left hip is a lump that feels like a sort of hard muscle that doesn't go away after pooping & doesn't hurt much & gets bigger and smaller Cancer?

Unlikely!: At the age of 16, cancer is pretty rare. Get seen and have it checked out. It will ease your mind, and the cause can be determined and., hopefully, you will be treated or reassured that treatment is not necessary. Either way, taking steps to determine the cause is an appropriate way to address your worry. ...Read more

Lump on lower right side above my hip not painful but uncomfortable and is rather large. What could it be?

Few possibilities : lipoma comes to mind, but a hernia is also possible. Also could be a hematoma if u had stretched it too much or injured urself. And then more concerning things could be something to do with ovaries. Overall I suggest to see ur physician so they could do a physica exam and see if further imaging studies are required ...Read more

Im a 16 year old male and ive discovered a small lump on the left side of my hip, it is firm, but not painful, what could it be?

Im a 16 year old male and ive discovered a small lump on the left side of my hip, it is firm, but not painful, what could it be?

Possible scar tissue: A firm, non-tender lump is most likely the result of a small impact injury that caused bruising and possible bleeding in the muscle and has resulted in scar tissue. This should remain the same size or shrink with time, but it enlarges, it need evaluation. If the lump is very small and seems to be at the skin level, is is most likely a benign cyst, and can also be watched. ...Read more

I have lower spinal arthiritis, i also hyper-extend my back naturally. I have these lumps above my hips that swell up and hurt, what are they?

Time for imaging: If you have any lumps that swell or hurt, it has to be imaged first in order to be diagnosed. A simple x-ray may be a good place to start, as any abnormality of bone will show up, and can be correlated with your spinal arthritis history. An MRI would show soft tissue features (muscle, tendon, cysts, etc). So , both together can yield the answers you're looking for.Until then, it's only speculati. ...Read more

I have this 5 inch lump by my hip, and i was wondering what it could be. I have had this for 3 years and it gets bigger every year. And it's starting to hurt, it's about 5 inches now.

Can : Can you provide some clarification. Does it protrude out 5 inches or does it have a 5 inch diameter? What color is it? Is the lump soft or hard? Does it appear to be close to bone (i.e., hip bone) or is it more like on the abdominal wall? Is it a deep lumb or a lump that is superficial? Is there any thing which makes it protrude more? Or anything that seems to reduce the size? What makes it hurt? ...Read more

When I lay on my hips it feels like a lump when I lay on it. It brings discomfort to me and when I have pressure from jeans it hurts too?

Avoid pressure/jeans: It's impossible to help without knowing what you mean by "hips"... but your body is telling you to "lay off" whatever area you feel the pain in. If you can FEEL (with your hand) or SEE a lump somewhere, you may need to see someone to help figure out what's going on. ...Read more
