Hi!
A lump just below the left hip which is painful can be an abscess (collection of pus), an infected cyst, a neurofibroma (collection of nerves and fibrous tissue) or a hair follicle infection. If it is so painful, it is unlikely to be a cancer, except may be a rare muscle cancer or a sarcoma. Please consult your PCP to evaluate these possibilities as most infective causes will need to be treated early. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
