I slipped & felI landed super hard on my hip. Couple hours later, I noticed on the hip bone a big, hard lump. What is this, and what should I do?

Hip: Most people consider their hip pointer as their hip bone, so if this is the part that was injured, most of the time the protective bursa shields the bone and therefore preventing a fracture. One typically gets some bleeding into that bursa which can become distended, hence firm lumpy and painful. Rest, use ice and avoid activities for 36-48 hours. If you begin having sharp groin pain, get an xrayi ...Read more

I am 23 years old and I noticed a small movable lump under the skin right next to my right hip bone. It doesn't hurt but should I be worried?

Hard to say: If you have a soft tissue lesion anywhere that you have noticed, it bears observation. Lesions that are increasing in size, especially rapidly, or those associated with increasing pain, are concerns for malignancy. A painless mass which is constant in size, unchanging in appearance, and unchanged over time is likely benign. Lipomas are the most common soft tissue benign lesions; common and benign. ...Read more

Your symptoms should be getting better generally. Hot pack 3 times a day with pain meds would help, as well as pt with strengthening exercises.

Father had titanium hip replacement last year, now may require imaging of shoulder bone, which has lump on it. Would MRI be allowed given titanium hip?

MRI COMPATIBLE: Titanium implants are MRI compatible. People with nontitanium implants should inform the radiologist or technician prior to the procedure; however, most joint implants are firmly attached inside bone and will not pose a serious problem. People with internal metallic surgical staples from healed surgeries should also inform the radiologist or technician prior to the procedure. ...Read more

If I am thin can I feel an enlarged iliac lymph node? I feel a lump in abdomen in between belly button and hip bone. I do not feel it on other side.

If I am thin can I feel an enlarged iliac lymph node? I feel a lump in abdomen in between belly button and hip bone. I do not feel it on other side.

No: Even if you are thin iliac nodes are not palpable. Too deep. Inguinal nodes can be easily palpated- that's in the groin. Also, there other causes for bumps in the belly. Depends which side and location. You could feel enlarged ovarian cyst if you are really skinny. Can feel your own colon on left side - especially if full of poop, and so on. ...Read more
