Eval: Don't know where on the lower back it is. If it is in the area of the gluteal cleft (butt crack) it could be a pilonidal cyst. Cysts can develop on others areas of the back as well as lipomas. Most are more rounded in shape (not angular). Your doctor should be able to help identify the lesion. Take care.

Different options: Our bodies have a lot of things in it both in the skin and below it. Sweat glands, hair follicles and skin cysts as well as lymph nodes, fatty tissue, vessels, tendons and other things. Is the lump growing, inflamed, painful, painless, draining, recurrent or constant, moveable or fixed...? Each of these (and many more) will provide your doc the answers as to what it is and what needs to be done.
