Hi and welcome to HCM. Thanks for the query.
There is no obvious cause. it can be found in anyone and mostly depends on genetics. Good thing is that it is almost always benign and it wont cause serious consequances. it can be painful if become large enough and then surgery is required. you should have surgery as soon as possible if you have such pain.
Wish you good health. Regards
