Time for imaging: If you have any lumps that swell or hurt, it has to be imaged first in order to be diagnosed. A simple x-ray may be a good place to start, as any abnormality of bone will show up, and can be correlated with your spinal arthritis history. An MRI would show soft tissue features (muscle, tendon, cysts, etc). So , both together can yield the answers you're looking for.Until then, it's only speculati.
