A few months ago I noticed two small (~1 cm

Patient

Q: A few months ago I noticed two small (~1 cm diameter) lumps, one on each side of my pelvic bone towards the bottom of my hip bone. I assumed they were just swollen lymph nodes (I had a cold at the time). However, a month or two later when I went in for a physical, another lump had appeared on the right side, and the lump on the left side had sunk in further so it was more difficult to feel. My physician said it was not lymph nodes but probably not something to worry about. This was around a month ago, but the lumps have been multiplying since then, and there are currently 4-5 all grouped together in a line on each side. They are not visible except for slightly raised skin, and do not hurt to touch. They feel solid and are flexible but not movable (i.e. they will move a very small amount around a fixed area). I am not sexually active.
