Pee size lumps on hip
Hi.
I've seemed to have develped 2 small pee sized lumps, no the front side of my hip, just below where the stomach muscle ends and joint where thigh muscle starts about 8cm from the croch. It was tender at first, but are fine now. They have grown slightly in size. I've had them for the last 3 weeks.
I dont think its anything to worry about, as i've spoken to a couple of guys who've had them. They seem to get them with heavy exercise? I was just wondering what they are. (I was thinking anything from muscular knots, or somthing to do with tendons or even veins or lymph nodes) what causes them, how long do they last and how do you get rid of them?

Nic, it is very difficult to say what they are without being able to examine you, but it sounds like they might be sebaceous glands or lipomas. The best would be to just make sure and let your doctor take a look next time you visit him. Good luck.
