Unlikely related: You may very well have two different problems, the lump (lipoma) on your upoer back , and the leg numbness, which may be the cause you fell when you got out of bed lately. Kindly revisit your doctor for evaluation and possible referral to a neurologist, good luck

Depends on: size and whether it is located any deeper than subcutaneous tissue. If you are concerned, you should get a second opinion.
