Painful lump in the stomach. No pain on touching. What could it be?

Lately I have been having slight pain on my right side. I thought it was my appendix. I was feeling around my stomach and found a small lump near my left hip bone . It doesn t hurt, but when I press on it, it gives me just a bit of pain. Like gas pains. I don t want to get scared about something that isn t major. It is just better safe than sorry!

Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Your description sound like - it probably is in or under the skin.
Most likely, it may have nothing to do with your pain. It may not be of any significance.
But unless examined by an expert, a definite opinion is not possible. - see your doctor.
The surest and safest approach in case of doubt - is to remove it and get it examined.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

Welcome to HCM and thanks for your query.
The lump needs to be examined by a doc, preferably an orthopedic surgeon as it is near the bone.
A radiograph may help to differentiate a bony one from a soft tissue one.

Get well soon
