It is not visable but when I press to feel my hip bone it's located right at the top of my right hip bone it's a firm round ball about the size of a hazelnut and I can move it away from my hip bone a little tiny bit but it is very painful when I try to move it or with the slightest touch. I never usually have lower back pain but now it feels like I have a pinch feeling in my lower right back as well. I have a slight bruise on my hip around the same area as the lump but cannot recall any reasoning for it and the bruise itself isn't painful to touch

Brief Answer:
Subcutaneous inflammatory or boil type lesion more likely .

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear

Thanks for the details .

* This looks more of subcutaneous inflammatory or boil type lesion with possible
infection ( as the amount of pain is much with slightest touch ) .

* Back pain seems different issue like muscle ache or ligament sprain , for
which local analgesic spray or ointment will work excellent .

* Recommendations for the lump at present

- Ice application 3 times a day .
- Pain killer gives primary pain relief , but recommended to consult your doctor
for physical check up as this requires antibiotics and anti inflammatory
drugs to resolve .

- Avoid direct pressure over it .
- Ultrasound of local part may also be helpful for further details .

Hope this will help you .
Welcome for further assistance .

Wishing you fine recovery .
Regards .
