Does a lump or bump on your hip bone automately mean cancer? There is no pain unless you push it.

No, it does not automaticaly mean cancer. A lump or bump at the joint of any bone needs to be evaluated by your doctor for an accurate diagnosis. It can be a fatty cyst called a lipoma.

Here is some info, let me know if you have questions.

Reply to Deborah's Post: The lump does not seem to be soft or move around. It is sore if pressed on. It seems to be right where my hip connects. I'm scared!
Don't be sacred! It is reason for concern, but it is doubtful it is cancer. Sounds more like a lipoma. Cancerous tumors are not likely to cause pain and appear in this manner.

See your doctor this week.
