Lower Right Back Tumor Symptoms
34 year-old woman continues to suffer gynecologic pains, especially with bodily movement, after da Vinci surgery for fibroids and endometriosis.....?
Ovarian conservation: Unfortunately this is fairly common; my best guess is it's related to recurrent or ongoing endometriosis. There are many (good) reasons for preserving ovaries when having a hysterectomy, but good data show that if ovaries are conserved women are 6 times more likely (62% vs. 10%) to have recurring symptoms, and 8 times more likely to need additional surgery (31% vs. 4%) than those who have them removed. Adhesive disease is certainly another possibility. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
"tumor" literally translates as "mass", so even a fresh bruise could be called a "tumor". Doctors use the term "neoplasm" (tranlates literally as new growth) to describe tumors that are abnormal growths of cells. These may be benign or malignant; "malignant" = cancer. In everyday usage, we use "tumor" ...Read more
Yes, quite uncommon: But, what prompts your concerns? A variety of tumors may present over the thoracic vertebrae, some causing nocturnal pain responsive to aspirin, others compressing the spinal cord, resulting in urinary incontinence, leg weakness and numbness.

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
I've been experiencing some discomfort in the back lower part of my head.It feels really weird.What is that? Do I have a tumor or a forming blood clot?
Hard to tell: Although it is probably not emergent, there can be a pathology contributing to the sensation you describe. I would make an appointment with your doctor so they can rule some possibilities like tumor, muscle pain, infection, etc. A blood clot that moves to the brain is a medical emergency. If you suddenly feel one-sided body weakness, cannot smile or speak, that is your cue to get to the er! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What would symptoms be if I had advanced pancreatic cancer in the tail and is it possible to feel the tumor in the LLQ of my back?
Upper GI bleed: Tail of pancreas cancers rarely cause pain. Rather as they grow they obstruct the venous output from the spleen from blood feeding the spleen via the splenic artery. The spleen output is shifted to the vasa brevia of the greater curvature of the stomach where varices are formed and GI bleeding follows. Spread to other sites also noted early ie. liver. ...Read more
What should I do about my hamstrings? I had back surgery to remove a benign tumor in my lower back around two years ago. The tumor caused non-stop pain from my lower back to my ankles to the point where i was pretty much bedridden. This lasted for eight m
From : From the sounds of your description, the tumor that was removed had some involvement of the spinal cord or the nerves of the cauda equina descending from the cord. Your description of pain is consistent with a continued neurologic cause of the ongoing pain. This could be from post operative scar tissue about the nerves of the cauda equina or just residuals from damage caused by the original tumor. The recommendations of your physical therapist appear correct, however, there can often be additional measures taken to improve your tolerance of the therapy activities. My recommendation would be to engage the care of a physician specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation to best guide your recovery. Considerations would be for medications to calm the nerves or consider medications for muscle spasticity if indicated. ...Read more
