Had CT w/o contrast for kidney stones. Ct clear but still low back pn. Would CT have seen lymphoma mass if it were causing my pain? No history of cancer,
Don't worry: Yes, if you had lymphoma that was big enough to cause you pain, it would be visible on a ct scan! so I think you can rest assured that lymphoma is not causing your low back pain. This type of pain is common, and there are many causes. I wonder why you are worried about cancer? Maybe you know someone with lymphoma? Search healthtap for info about back pain and see what fits with your symptoms! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Healthy 32 yr old woman, no drink/no smoking. Have red and white blood in urine and back pain. Plain X-ray seems normal. Chance of cancer? Low back pn
Would a tumor caused from lymphoma, e.G. Node, etc, show up on plain xray and ct? Low back pn, clear l spine xray and CT to look for kidney stones, etc.
Not XR: A x-ray would not be particularly helpful, unless it's a large tumor. Ct would be much better, and should be able to pick up enlarged lymph nodes. Watch out for contrast though. Kidney stone cts are done without IV contrast, but you will need contrast to look for tumor (at least much better at it). Talk to your doctor to make sure whether you are doing it with or without contrast. ...Read more

For the second time in 2 weeks I have mildly seized my lower back after barely bending over. Low-grade pain goes away in 2 days. Should I be concerned?
No. But: It sound as if you are describing musle spam. This may be resulting from a lower back muscle strain. I would recommend that you perform stretching exercise along with strengthening exercises. Would recommend that you participate in a yoga class or pilates. If pain persist see your pcp for an evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Also trying a course of anti-inflammatories might also be helpful.
