The : The bottom of the sacrum is called the tail bone or coccyx. Sometimes people are born with them sticking out or sometimes they stick out after an injury (fracture). In severe cases the coccyx can be removed. I would discuss this with your primary care doctor. Good luck! ...Read more

A donut and patience: Coccydynia or tailbone pain is most likely and has many causes from unknown (most common) to direct trauma, infection, and tumor. It can be treated with a pain reliever or anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen. Limiting sitting for prolonged periods is suggested along with use of a padded cushion or "donut" to protect the tailbone. It can take weeks to months to resolve so be patient. ...Read more

Don't is safe way: Tarlov cysts in this region are not uncommon and are usually not a cause for pain unless one is dealing with soft or osteoporotic bone which can occasionally be subjected to pressure changes by a large cyst creating a fracture of the bone which then becomes painful. See an orthopedist to evaluate you symptoms for the source. ...Read more

Context matters: Whoever ordered the X-rays should be answering your questions. It does not matter what it could be or how likely it is. What matters is what it is and how to treat. If your doctors don't know yet, they certainly will be working to find out the cause. If they haven't told you anything yet, it could be they don't know yet. If they do know, they will tell the patient or his/her designee. ...Read more

Tumour removed from sacrum in feb 2012.Neurosurgeon drilled hole into sacrum to check for tumour in bone. Extreme pain13 months later. Is sacrum damaged?

Pain after biopsy: Presuming your biopsy was benign, i would say it is not normal to have significant pain after this type of procedure. That does not imply your doctor did anything wrong, either. My concerns would be a stress fracture at the site of biopsy, a bone infection, or even further growth of whatever was being biopsied (benign tumors can enlarge, too). I would make sure i saw my doc again and made aware. ...Read more

Xray: xrays of the sacrum also will show signs of gas and particles in the large intestine. An xray takes 3 dimensions and reduces it to 2 dimensions, overlaying multiple structures into a flat image, distorting things to some degree. Pelvic phleboliths (vascular calicifications) are common. The sacrum also has foraminae where nerves pass, which may appear as dark spots. ...Read more

Yes: Many patients have benign areas of sclerosis, often in the sacrum, pelvis and hips.
