Dh has a lump in his hip. And I'm secretly freaking out.
It has literally just appeared, he had a v thorough medical a month ago and it wasn't there.
It's big, about the length of my hand and I can move it about...it seems v big to be a lipoma. And it's come on so fast, although he has recently had bouts of sciatica and a sore back over the past fortnight.
He has an appointment with doctors, but unless he gets a definitive answer we could be looking at a stressed Christmas waiting for a referral.
I'm so worried, would love any ideas or reassurance.
Could be a hernia? Also lipomas can be huge! If it’s soft and movable that’s a good sign
