Dear Doc. I have had a Small soft lump on my left thigh for about 1 yr. A few days ago, i felt something coming up like a boil on the lower spin above the buttocks . Within a day, it has turned to be another soft lump. I have not experienced pain but for the time the growth begins. Could it be cancerous? Please Help, Am 52.
