I have pea sized lump on my left buttock cheek. Could it be a recurring cancer ?

I have pea sized lump on my left buttock cheek. It is smooth, firm and painless but causing a little discomfort when I sit. Could it be a type of sarcoma? I had Hodgkin s almost 10 years ago and a tumor in my left lung removed. Went through chemotherapy but no radiation. Please advise soonest possible. I am so worried that it could be a recurring cancer .

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
The status of malignancy of this small swelling can be known from more details like since how long it has been there , is there any change in size , do you have any other associated symptoms.
You can provide these details as comment to this reply or feel free to mail me.
It is unlikely to be a recurring cancer , however as you had a history of cancer , it is very important for you to get examined .
I advise you to visit your Physician and get examined to rule out malignancy.
Take care

Thank you so very much for the prompt reply. I think I have had this lump for about 2 weeks already and it seems like it has not changed in size. I do not have any other symptoms and my appetite is quite good. What kind of specialist do I need to consult? Do I go straight to oncologist to rule out malignancy or a general surgeon? Can you let me know what makes you think that it is unlikely to be a recurring cancer? Kindly excuse me,I just need some reassurance. Will the doctor be able to give a diagnosis by having a look at it without me having to go through biopsy? Hope to hear from you soon and thanking you in advance.
