Lump on lower right side above my hip not painful but uncomfortable and is rather large. What could it be?
Few possibilities: Lipoma comes to mind, but a hernia is also possible. Also could be a hematoma if u had stretched it too much or injured urself. And then more concerning things could be something to do with ovaries. Overall I suggest to see ur physician so they could do a physica exam and see if further imaging studies are required ...Read more
I'm a 16 year old male and ive discovered a small lump on the left side of my hip, it is firm, but not painful, what could it be?
Possible scar tissue: A firm, non-tender lump is most likely the result of a small impact injury that caused bruising and possible bleeding in the muscle and has resulted in scar tissue. This should remain the same size or shrink with time, but it enlarges, it need evaluation. If the lump is very small and seems to be at the skin level, is is most likely a benign cyst, and can also be watched. ...Read more

Strech mark on side of hip has a red painful lump coming out of it. Can strech marks get hernias? If not what could this be
It could be a hernia: Technically stretch marks can not get a hernia, but you could have a hernia below a stretch mark. A hernia occurs whenever the fascia of the abdominal wall comes apart to allow tissue to bulge through below. The fact that you have a red and painful bump suggest a possible abscess. I recommend you see a doctor. ...Read more
Painful golf ball sized lump when I push on my right abdomen right above my hip. Are there any special organs right there? It hurts
No special organs: Externally at the level of the skin, there are no special organs. However, if this protrudes as a lump, you have to consider a hernia or a mass in the wall of the abdomen. A hernia would be a defect in the wall of the abdomen that bowel can protrude through. This is often soft and compressible. A firm mass in the wall of the abdomen could be a tumor of some type. It is best to have it evaluated. ...Read more
