Noticed a lump in an unuasual place
I have discovered that a lmp has apperaed under the skin around my waist. It is postioned just under the skin on my right side within my love handle.

It gives me no pain and there is no pain when i touch it or press it.

What do you think it could be?

Max, it sounds like a lipoma (just a lump of “crazy” fat), but I can’t guarantee it from this side of the screen. The best would be to let your doctor take a look and make sure. Good luck.
