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? 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

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

I have severe LB/glute pain primarily on left side. L I noticed a (fluid like) lump on sacrum bilaterally but larger on left. What could this be?

Get a scan: The differential diagnosis would include fat necrosis, partial or full disc herniation, sacrococcygeal mass, cutaneous tumors, and poorly exercised paraspinal muscles. I suggest you see a physical therapist to have the area evaluated and go from there, if the answer is not simple an MRI may be needed to identify what lies beneath the skin for diagnosis and therapy ...Read more

I have lumps on my lower back and some in chest what might be the reason?

Anything?: Without actual evaluation, it is hard to assess why you might have these lumps. If they bother you, I would have them checked out. Could be nothing like a benign tumor called a lipoma (fat tissue collection) or could be an infection of glands or worse possible cancer tumor. Rather than wonder what it is, get it checked out. ...Read more

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

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
