Brief Answer:
Can be osteoma or muscle mass.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

A hard lump on the iliac bone that you have can be a simple bone related swelling like asthma or a torn muscle fascia that causes a muscle to bulge out. This can be diagnosed after an X-ray and MRI scans of the area. An FNAC may be needed in case it is an abnormal mass.

Hope I have answered your query.
