I have this hard large lump on my hip and it hurts so bad. It's also slightly red. Does anyone here have any idea what that may be? :(

From the limited info you've given, it sounds like an abcess (or boil)... nothing sinister. If its that painful, see your doc and they'll probably give you a course of antibiotics or think about sending you go get it drained. Best of luck!

PS They are very common and generally not related to any diseases.

CLarieMacl, thanks for your info. Yeah that's what my mom and I thought too but my mom was saying that a boil feels like it's bubbling inside. And this hard lump that I have is like a knot; the pain is all over the left side of my butt cheek. The hard lump only hurts when someone touches it or I rub my hip against something. Also I have another small hard lump on my right side as well but that doesn't hurt anymore. It's been there for about 6 months now. Also where the left lump is my whole left leg is swollen. I kinda thought it was another lupus flare but I don't know.
