Lump on the back: The lump you feel most likely is a benign tumor of the fat called a lipoma. It is important to know if it is movable, soft or hard. A hard immovable lump is of concern and could suggest cancer. If it is soft and movable it most likely benign. Also, has it increased in size? If it is increasing in you should be examined ASAP. Some one should check it anyhow at some point. ...Read more

I have a lump on my lower back above the buttocks, is cancer? Its painless, im really worried

Probably not: It depends on your age and exact other symptoms. Pilonidal cysts are quite common in this location, but they usually have hair or drainage associated with them. Is it a mass? Is it soft and pliable? Could be a lipoma. If it is hard, irregular borders, and immobile, that is more concerning. Probably should get it looked at. ...Read more

Hiya I have a lump on my lower back you can't see but can feel it not sore to touch just a bit worrying what could it be in 23 thank you x?

Back lump: Anything you can't see needs to be "seen" by someone who can give a reasonable guess what it is. Then, how to "diagnose" the lump is another matter. Any number of entities, like fatty lumps (lipomas), lymph nodes, skin disease (moles), or a myriad of other things should be at least looked at. See a physician. ...Read more

Lack of redness, pain and tenderness means that it is not inflamed or infected and may not have to be removed unless it's in an area of the body where it's subjected to continual irritation or unless it's growing or unless the examining physician recommends its removal. ...Read more

I have a small jelly like lump in my lower back and it moves when I try to massage it bur never goes away can it be a tumor?

Get it checked: Just to be sure it is nothing bad, make sure and get it looked at by a doctor; but, more than likely, it is probably a lipoma. These are benign fatty masses, which occur as we age. It could also be an epidermal cyst (these are also caused sebaceous cysts). These are also benign. But, again, get someone to look at it. ...Read more

Maybe fat?: If you are overweight, it could simply be extra fat in your public area, and maybe even spinal disc problems from vein overweight as well. It's a bit more complex than this however, and really requires a visit to the doctor for a more complete history and physical examination. If you have already been to a doctor, consider getting a second opinion. ...Read more
