What makes fatty tissue hurt? I am having some sharp pains in an area that is covered with a lot of fatty tissue. The pain does not seem to go behind the tissue but it is sharp and persistant.

Have you seen a lump appear there, like a hernia or a fatty lump?

No lump yet, but I suppose there could one to small for me to notice yet.

The two commonest causes are hernia or inflammation of the pubic tubercle. I would advise a review by your physician. If they cannot feel an obvious hernia you may need an ultrasound scan, especially if you are having this much pain
