Lumps in pelvic area,  not painful.  My dr thinks it's due to shaving,  but would this still be the cause if its underneath the skin? Not ON my skin?

Then they get pissed off and try harder but can't break back through or, actually grow in really screwy directions. That causes irritation and bumps.

I have a lump between pelvis & abdomen doctor said no hernia or tumors or cyst what could it be ? It causes pain but not when i push down to it

Where exactly?: Where exactly is the lump? Between pelvis and abdomen is too vague. Is it a superficial (ie. Can you see it?) lump or is it something that is internal that was seen on an ultrasound or a ct scan? Also important to know how big it is. What type of dr told you it was not a hernia, tumor, or cyst? Did they see it or are they also answering your question based on your description? ...Read more

Very hard lump on L pubic BONE causes pain in my whole left side of my back,hip, and pelvis. CT shows scattered bone islands. Lump feels like bone.

Usually these infections lead to painful perhaps even frequent urgent urination. Bottom line, go see your Family Doc, GYN or Planned Pare ...Read more

Hello I have a lump in my pelvic area possibly about the size of a golf ball at time is painful! is this something to be alarmed about?

Hello I have a lump in my pelvic area possibly about the size of a golf ball at time is painful! is this something to be alarmed about?

Yes: Anything the size of a golf ball, that wasn't there in the past, and isn't suppose to grow there, should be worried about. The "pelvic area" doesn't describe exactly where the golf ball is, so a primary care doctor can look to see where it really is. Possibilities include: hernia, enlarged lymph node, cyst, etc... ...Read more
