I recently found a sizable lump (golf ball size)in middle of my lower back. I can move it slightly and it has no pain. Should I be concerned?

Probably not: Most likely, it's probably a "lipoma"--a piece of encapsulated fat. If it's not cosmetically bothering you, and it doesn't hurt, no treatment is necessary. If you're concerned about it, you can have it surgically removed by a dermatologist or a good GP. ...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?

Most are more rounded in shape (not angular). Your doctor should be able to help identify the lesion. Take care. ...Read more

Tender lump on lower back. Cancerous?

Tender lump on lower back. Cancerous?

Hard to say: It is hard to say if the lump is cancerous without seeing it. A couple of key things to watch: has it changed in size or color, has the pain characteristics changed, is there bleeding or ulceration, are there signs of infection, is there redness or drainage? If the answer to any of these is yes, you should have it checked out by your family doctor. ...Read more

Hemorrhoid: It sounds like a hemorrhoid. Please see a doctor for confirmation. Prevent constipation, drink lots of water, place a nice pack. Decrease your spicy food intake. This is a chronic condition that can be managed by lifestyle change and if it gets worse can be surgically removed easily. No stress. ...Read more
