Hard to say: It is hard to say, there are many potential causes. It is unusual to have a spine related complaint in and of itself, so it is a little more likely it is something in the area. A bursa is a structure that can be inflamed and swollen in the area, an abcess can also cause atraumatic swelling. I would encourage you to be checked. Thank you for the question.
