Paraspinal tendernes: Not always. It could be inflammation in the muscle or from a strain. A physical exam and history would narrow the diagnoses

Get it checked: A long list of things can cause a lump like that - some more serious than others. Since it is painful, you should have it evaluated by your doctor.
