I have a lump on my right hip and I have been to 4 different doctors and neither of them can tell me what it is. I'm scared. One told me that it's just a bunch of fat cells or something clumped together, but that doesn't make sense to me, because this lump really hurts and just keeps getting bigger and bigger. I can't seem to get a straight answer on what it could be. HELP!!

Question

I have a lump about the size of a smallish sprout on my hip.

It is hard and sits at the top of the hip. There is only one on my right leg and there is nothing similar on my left leg.

When I went to my local surgery a nurse examined me and said it was probably just fatty tissue.

It does not hurt but should I be concerned about it?

Answer

There are a number of things I would like to know about this lump, including;


Is it hard like a piece of bone, really solid, or is just firm and not compressible?


When you squeeze the skin around it, does it look a bit dimpled?


On close examination, is there a tiny pore on the top of it?


Does it move around or is it fixed?


Is it just under the skin or is it deep down?


As you can imagine, the only really effective way to answer all these questions is to have the thing in front of you and examine it properly.

The nurse may be quite right that it is a fatty lump - also called a lipoma - but I really think a doctor should look at this before you accept that it is a lipoma.

Go and show it to your GP and get his or her opinion. If your GP doesn't know, then you should be referred to a specialist at the hospital to find out.

Please don't worry about this, I do not think this is anything sinister, but it is always best to be sure.

So take it along and show it to your GP, he or she will, I am sure, be happy to check it out and advise the best course of action.

Yours sincerely

Dr Keith Barnard, GP

Lump on hip
I have a hard lump on my left side (hip area) I will say it is the size of a dime. It do not move when touch, its deep down but you can feel it when you put slight pressure. It do not hurt most time except when I sleep on the left size and just recently I slept on that size and woke up in serious pain. I was told it was probably a cyst from my primary doctor.

My question is could it be something more?

Thanks for all the help.

Hard knot on hip also
Hello All, I have the exact same thing on my left hip. It is spreading. It is not painful, but sometimes when I accidentally pump it I can feel it. I have the light spots forming on my left arm also, in the exact same fashion that started on my hip. I can feel small dime size knots in it. Not painful, just curious. What can you do to stop it from spreading? Is there a cure? Is it just Fatty Neucrosis or a type of Sarcoma?

This is very common I have found out I have one on my right hip and its very painful weither I sit or stand the pain doesn't subside and even at times will go around into my abdomen..no pain meds help at all so I talked with my FD and it seems its very common for people o get benign tumors there and it attaches itself to ligaments and muscles unfortunately the only relief is to have it surgically removed.
