Top 4 Painless Hip Lump Causes

  1. 1.Wart

    Warts are non-serious skin growths caused by a virus that infects the top layer of the skin. They are contagious.

    You can try several over-the-counter treatments, including salicylic acid and cryotherapy (freezing). Most warts go away on their own, but less so in adults.

  2. 2.Skin Cyst

    An epidermoid cyst is a closed sac under the skin filled with a cheese-like or oily material. It is often caused by trauma or surgery.

    You do not need treatment for this condition because it is completely benign; however, if the lesion changes at all, a doctor should be consulted. If you would like it removed, a doctor can cut out the cyst.

  3. 3.Lipoma

    A lipoma is a noncancerous growth of fatty tissue cells. A lipoma can develop in almost any organ of the body although they are most commonly found in the subcutaneous layer just below the skin.

    You do not need treatment for this condition because it is completely benign; however, if the lesion changes at all, a doctor should be consulted. If you would like it removed, a doctor can cut, freeze, or burn it off.

    Rarity:
    Uncommon
    Top Symptoms:
    skin-colored hip bump, marble sized hip lump, small hip lump

  4. 4.Skin Abscess

    A skin abscess is an infection of the deeper skin that's typically due to bacteria seen on the skin. Recently, infections are more frequently caused by Staph. Aureus (puts the "staph" in "staph infections").

    You should visit your primary care physician or an urgent care clinic today or tomorrow. Treatment of an abscess includes incision and drainage. It is likely you will be prescribed antibiotics as well. Surgery may be required to get rid of the whole abscess after inflammation has died down. Do not drain the abscess yourself.

    Top Symptoms:
    painful hip lump, large hip lump, marble sized hip lump, pink or red hip bump, purulent hip mass
