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?

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

If it does not go away, you may want to have it looked at - sometimes we need to take these out for definitive diagnosis if they linger. ...Read more
