I have appointment for the 1st march and am worried. Their is no scan over here for overie cancer...sorry for bad spelling has its hard to type when im in pain
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!
