I have a firm, rubbery mass on the right side of my sacrum. It is about the size of my thumb - painless - and somewhat movable. Should I see a doctor?

Eventually but...: I have one of those too (same location), but it is more the size of a peanut.

1 wk bilateral flank pain, now a big mass deep in right abdomen ~2" below ribs. Scoots upward if i squeeze my side. Stools have been black/maroon but are occult neg. No other (new) symptoms. Advice?

1 wk bilateral flank pain, now a big mass deep in right abdomen ~2" below ribs. Scoots upward if i squeeze my side. Stools have been black/maroon but are occult neg. No other (new) symptoms. Advice?

GI blood: Black stools, if not due to upper GI bleeding can be caused by taking iron or peptobismol. Maroon colored stools are quite suspicious of blood coming from the small intestine or upper colon. An abdominal ct scan or MRI should identify the mass you describe and give the radiologist and your physician enough information to make a differential diagnosis and advise you on the next course of action. ...Read more

I have what looks like a large mass or two things inside my vagina which basically close it up. My whole vulva area looks warped with lumps and colours. what could this be? Coccyx & pelvic pain too.

See your doctor: One thing that comes to mind is the possibility of enlarged and possibly infected Bartholin's cysts. The Bartholin's glands are around the vaginal lips and can become blocked, creating a cyst or sometimes an abscess. Abscesses need to be drained and can cause infection further than just the vulvo-vaginal area.This could explain your pelvic pain. Please see your doc for proper diagnosis and treatment ...Read more
