I need advice on what to do with this painful lump on my lower back?

I need advice on what to do with this painful lump on my lower back?

Pinched Nerve/Muscle: Most times back pain that is sudden onset will resolve. You should use anti-inflammatory meds like ibuprofen, aleve around the clock and even tylenol (acetaminophen) to help. If this does not resolve you should see your doctor for a full evaluation. If it still does not resolve, I would recommend to see a spine specialist for a full evaluation and testing. You may need to get an MRI to see inside the spine. ...Read more

?nodes: These may be enlarged lymph nodes in the posterior neck chains. In the absence of other symptoms like a rash in the neck or scalp, or viral like syndrome, we would simply recheck these in a week to see if they're receding or enlarging or whether new nodes have appeared. In case of the latter, your MD would order appropriate tests which could include a biopsy. ...Read more

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
