Brief Answer:
May be related

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history and understood your concerns.
The pain on the left side can be related to the lump which in case of diabetes can be an infected sebaceous cyst or a carbuncle.
Please do the following and let me know the feedback:
Check for the blood sugar whether normal or not.
Please post the photos of the lump as it helps sometimes for on-the-spot diagnosis.
Check if the lump is XXXXXXX or fixed; tender or not.
You may need a course of an antibiotic and anti-inflammatory medications on prescription.

Awaiting for your feedback.
