Contemplating if I should go to the emergency room for a lump in my back that i believe cause great pain throughout my lower back, butt, & left leg?
No Need for ER visit: Pain in the distribution as you suggested describes the pattern of the nerve that travels in the leg called the sciatic nerve.

Just discovered a painful, small lump near the bottom of my left calf. No ins. Need advice. Only painful when touched. Not visible. Ideas?
Cyst: If it is not visible, then most likely it's not inflammatory, because those are red, hot, swollen, itchy. Ganglion cysts (cysts located on the tendons) are by far the most common cause of otherwise not painful lumps unless touched. They are smooth surfaced, firm, mobile. They are benign and sometimes may disappear, although, at times may grown and cause even more pain due to compression. ...Read more

I just recently started having a sharp stabbing pain in my left calf. The pain lasts for a few seconds and now there's a lump what could it be?
Muscle pull: We're always concerned with blood clots when we see calf pain, but this does not sound like one since you dont mention redness, swelling or tenderness. My best guess given the supplied info is either a pulled or partially torn gastrocnemius (resulting in a palpable lump) or possibly a soft tissue mass giving you nerve pain. "lumps" should never b ignored. See your doctor and have it checked. ...Read more

Can be anything!: Hard painful lumps and bumps need to be evaluated by your PCP, or dermatologist for further evaluation.
