A small bump on left bone hip, around 2 × 1cm, its hurt when get touch (only hurt on the bump not else), it appeared about 5 dys ago, cancer / tumor?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor if the symptoms persist for more than 10 or so days, of if the symptoms get worse.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Not a tumor: During diets, the weight loss may not be uniform and you lose weight in areas like your extremities but not the torso. If you have a sustained weight loss, than over time your body will decrease the torso or waist area and you can decrease your size. Sustained duration of weight loss will be best for the results of decreasing your body circumference. ...Read more

Disk or tumor: This is a no brainer- you already have a history of tumor and if they are saying it could be herniated disc or tumor you need to find out - the latter needs to be treated, the former treatment not needed unless you have symptoms that do not respond to regular management. While you are at high risk there are procedures that can be done with local and minor sedation to assist in the diagnosis ...Read more

Does a MRI of the lumbar spine show any part of the hip or pelvis? I had an MRI of my knee last week and it shows and "incidental" finding of a tumor in my femur. I have been having decreased rom and pain of my right hip and knee for about 3 months. Hist

Lumbar MRI: To answer your question, no. Lumbar MRI will show from the lower thoracic spine (t10 or so) down to the sacrum and sacroiliac joints. This view window does not expand out far enough to see the hip joints at all. You would need a hip specific mri. Use of contrast on MRI may be useful to determine vascularity of "tumor" and whether further study is warranted. For sure, follow up with your doc. ...Read more
