Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX
Thanks for posting your query.

The lump is more likely to be due to soft tissue (usually fatty tissue) in the location that you have mentioned.

Fat tissue grows through the holes in the facial layer over time forming fatty lipomas.
Some days they may not hurt and some days it hurts to even walk. Hence the lump get larger over time it can also cause referred pain in the buttock and down the leg.

Hope this will help you. Please do write back if you have any additional concerns.

Wishing you good health...
