Does everyone have dimples on their lower back?

Does everyone have dimples on their lower back?

No: Most people do not. The "dimples of venus" seen on some slim people overlie the sacroiliac joints. Why they are visible in some people and not others remains a mystery of medicine, just like why some people have chin clefts and others do not.

Cyst: Depending how long the lump has been present and how it formed, it may recede on its own, may need to be drained, or may need to be excised. See your physician and she/he will be better able to assess it. It is likely benign (meaning it won't cause serious problems), but is likely to be a nuisance until you get it taken care of.

Hard to say: Discuss with your doctor. You might want an x-ray of your lower back to assess. There are conditions that involve the distal spine that are not clinically significant but worth knowing about (e.g. Spina bifida occulta).
