Red flags: Back pain most often is related to muscle strain or sprain. Lumps that you can feel are usually from a muscle spasming. Red flags that mean your lump and pain might be caused by infection or cancer include a fever, history of cancer, history of IV drug abuse, weakness in your legs, or losing control of your bowel or bladder. If you have these, you need to go to the er.
