Thanks for the query.

I would like to know more information about the pain.
- How the pain started? Was there any injury to the part?
When did you notice the mark?

Your description suggests a haematoma collection under the subcutaneous tissue. Traumatic Muscle spasm and sometimes the hip joint or nerve compression in spine can give rise to similar pain. X-ray of the hip and lumbar spine can be useful. You may consult an orthopedic nearby and get the X-rays done.

Meantime you can start anti inflammatory with muscle relaxant and local antiinflammatory application at pain site.

Please get back with more information.
