Hello, I am a...

Hello, I am a 38 year old female and I had a benign lipoma removed several months ago from the lower right side of my back (just above buttocks). Approx 1 mos later and intermittently since, I have been experiencing an ache upon standing and walking. There also appears to be another lump forming but I cannot be sure b/c the indention of the scar may just be adding a conclave. It does feel there is yet another. The ache seems to flare up and go away, then flare up again. What does this mean?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the lump? Is it hard or soft?

Hard

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have back strain before years back that was treated with physical therapy, but not exactly in that area.

Thank you.

This is most likely due to scar tissue which irritates the local nerves and the possibility of lipoma recurrence is there if you feel a lump there. However it is too early to say that as scar tissue and inflammation itself gives a feeling of lump or swollen nodule. I would recommend to apply ibuprofen cream over it to take care of pain and inflammation and monitor the area for any increase in size or lump like before. Massage the area with warm olive oil twice a day.

I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you and that I have earned my 5-star rating today!

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
