Hard lump under skin on buttock - I noticed this when showering and is sore when touched. Doesn't move and is smooth. What could it be?

In this case the skin on the surface may be read and warm to touch. If it is hard and not much tender it could be something more chronic. Either way you should show it to your doctor unless it starts to settle down and resolves within 1 wk ...Read more

Or more weak on the left? The asymmetry is more concerning. So get a checkup if this doesn't get better soon ...Read more
