Lower pelvis lump
Well.... This is awkward.
But essentially two days ago I brought my horse into work after a short break (2 weeks). And I myself had a short break. I worked him over low crossrails and flat work, and for myself I took my stirrups off my saddle. (We were jumping without stirrups) Yesterday I was very sore, which is to be expected. Today I thought I was still sore, but no. My thighs and legs are fine, but I have a small quarter sized raised lump about six inches down from my point of hip in my groin that is sore and slightly red. It seems to be in the skin and somewhat mobile- as in it's not attached to a bone but it's definitely something of a hard lump. It is possible that I had it before I went riding, and had not noticed it and riding made it painful. It is also possible that it was a product of the stirrup less jump work. Should I go in? Can I watch it for a week to see if it goes down? Has anyone had something like this before? Is it possible it's a lymph node?
