Small lump on the waist. Growing bigger, changing colour, causing pain. What could it be?

Hi, I noticed a small lump form on the side of my waste about 7 months after I had my first son. (no problems or difficulties with either the pregnancy or delivery) I made an appointment with my doctor a week later and he said its nothing to worry about. However, now this lump has gotten bigger and changing to a darker color. Its hard and very painful. I m really worried. Any thoughts?

Hi and welcome to HCM. Thank you for your query.

This is probably subcutaneous benign lesion such as lipoma,fibroma or vascular lesion and it shouldnt concern you but you need to evaluate this by ultrasound with aspiration biopsy and then it can be surgically removed.Since this is painful it may indicate that there is inflammtion so antibiotic treatment may be necessary. You should consult your GP about this.

WIsh you good health.
