    I noticed about 6 months ago I developed a lump in my lower right side of back next to the spine it is about 4″ long and 1″or so wide it seems to be movable it has not posed any problems unitl the last few days, it has not grown or shrunk any but lately causing discomfort in me back only on that side above the lump and some slight cramping in my leg, Do you have any ideas what this might be and what type of Doctor would you recommend?
    Thank You

      I have a lump in my lower right back, my husband noticed while giving me a massage five years ago. My back falls asleep and I feel like I can not move, what do u think this could possibly be. It only hurts if someone rubs it.

    I have a strange lump in my lower back which is right on the spine. It is not painful but it worries me that it is on the spine. What could it be?

    There is a small lump I can feel on my sons lower back about two inches away from the spine. It is close to a joint associated with the pelvic system. he is 14 years old. He is playing soccer as well as cricket. Is it a sport injury?

    These lumps are also commonly known as “Lumps of Venus” Totally benigne, and not too worry about. They will appear when fatigued, extreme back movements, and when irritated. Remember you are using your back even when asleep; therefore, your back is in constant use and more prone to irritation. They will be sensitive and you may feel some degree of disconfort.

    hello, My fiance has two lumps on the lower right side of his back. He saw his general ph. last year and was told they’re fatty tissues. Since then the second lump grew. What type of specialist shouls he see for these lumps? They are beneith the skin so I’m not sure if a dermetolegist would be the correct doctor to see for these lumps.

    I’m a 22 year old male, i’ve had a lump in the lower right side of my back. Its been there for around 1 and a half years. I first noticed it after I fell over and landed on that area so I just assumed it was some sort of bruissing. I think its getting smaller but having heard that the daughter of one of my mum’s friends who is only 21 had a lump in her lower back which was found to be cancerous it leaves me a little concerned.

    How many days did you have to do this? I have had knot in lower back for around 4 years and your lump never came back?

    I have had several on my neck and back and arm and found out the one on my neck was a lymph node of a salvatory gland that was dehydrated and then got infected because of a tooth cavity… I have read many of the posts and it looks like a fat deposit or a lymph gland to me…as I have developed one on the spine and oddly enough the one on my neck is almost undetectable… I am wondering if it moved to my back…strange..but from what I gather these lumps tend to have some connection with diet and water intake as well as hormones…

    last week I had bad pain in the right hand side of my back, I think I pulled a muscle but I have noticed a small lump that moves around and hurts if you push it I am very worried.

    I saw a doctor about this lump on the lower right side of my back. He told me it was either a fatty cell or a tumor cell and the only way to find out was to have a biopsy done, which is when they stick a long needle into and remove the core to test. I was given the names of some surgeons, because this has to be done by a surgeon he told me. Either outcome, he said that it was most likely benign if I wasn’t having any pain or numbness in the area. He said this even though I told him I was having lower back pain which I thought was unrelated.

      I’m just curious if you have done any check ups lately? Because I have recently found a lump just under my bra line and now I’m very curious. At first, I thought that it was a bruise but it has been about two to three weeks now and it’s still there. Get back to me. Thanks.

      I have several of these lumps too. A couple inches to the right and left of my spine. I don’t know if they’ve always been there. I know that now the one hurts when I press on it or bend over a certain way. The sort of roll around. Lumps freak me out. So does going to the Dr.. Ugh.

    Hey! I’ve had a lump in my lower right side of my back for a long while now. It’s really started to grow more and cause me more and more pain to my pelvic and back area. It actually increases my menstrual pains if you could imagine! When the pain’s at its worst, it goes all the way into my feet! My doctor prescribed me naproxen (a swelling reducer) because he thought it was a muscular problem and I’ve been taking it for 4 months now and the lump is still there causing problems with all it’s glory! It scares me because I have no idea what it is and the pain it gives me worries me. My doctor just wants me to get physical therapy, but how’s that suppose to work if it isn’t a muscular problem? I’m definitely getting a 2nd opinion.

    The lump in my lower back to the right of the spine moves around like a marble when I touch it. I first noticed it about five months ago and once asked my roommate who is a bigger hypochondriac than me and she said it’s just a lymph node. I went to the doctor to check out a similar lump in my breast that moves around like an air pocket when I press down on it and he told me it was a cyst. We did a biopsy anyway and it came out negative. My lumps don’t hurt. Also I am 22 and not really into diet and exercise. My hunch is most of the lumps you guys have been posting about are benign, but get checked out anyway just to be safe.

    I have been a little concerned about my lump on my lower back too. I have been told it is fat tissue accumulated there too. Are you totally serious about your recovery method? How long did it take to completely go away? And was the medicine expensive? Please let me know. Thanks!

    Hi, I have seen all the mails in this forum and it surprices me how this lump thing is so common. Well it has surely scared me. I noticed it a couple of months ago.. and it is on the right side of my spine somewhere close to the kidney. What worries me is I have a history of cyst. I had one in my right ovary about 6 years ago.. and was operated on coz it ruptured.. my ovary was removed in that surgery. someone tell me that this is not another cyst. I just had a sonogram done on my pelvic region 2 months ago.. (just before I saw the little lump.which is more like a clot) adn the sonogram said everything was normal. I am very hesitant to go to the doc. The surgery and post surgery memories are not very pleasent you see. Also we are planning for a baby.. is it safe? some one pls guide.

    I have one too and I noticed it about a week ago but I think I’ve had it longer than that though. it’s right in between my spine and my side and my side ( I think it may b my hip) hurts if I bend and turn. I went to the doctor yesterday and she seemed to think it was just muscular and that I needed to try some stretches. Iam just curious how a lump/knot can form in your muscle because you don’t stretch properly. I play sports so I do stretch slightly but there are people who don’t do anything an their muscles are. I really don’t like this though.

    Dear Doctor,
    I have recently noticed a semi-large bump in my lower back. My coaches at my school say that it is just my muscle bunched up from twisting alot and that I should put some biofreeze on it and do some stretches and leg-lifts. I’ve had the lump for about a week and a half now and every time I do some physical activity it starts to hurt and it seems to be slowly getting bigger. I have been doing the stretches and it doesn’t seem to be helping. So my question is, what is it and what should I do to get rid of it?
    Thank you, Jennifer Cameron

    I too have a lump in my lower back about 1-2 inches from spine. It feels hard, and when my back starts to get tired or if I stretch a certain way, it causes pain in the area. It feels like it is about .75 -1 inch in diameter. Does anybody have any idea what it may be. Thanks

    a few weeks ago I found a small lump, probably the size of a ping pong ball on my lower back under the skin nex to my spine. I’ve noticed sudle changes such as about 3 months ago I discovered the the tip of my tongue and the right side of it are very red, more red then the rest, it tingles sometimes & other times I don’t feel a thing. I’ve also been going to the bathroom much more than I usually do. I don’t know why?

    i just found this small lump on my spine today.. so I freaked out and googled it.. but noone seems to know what it is…

    Yes, It moves around like a very large marble. It’s getting bigger. Went and had a CT scan, no tissue mass. They still don’t know what it is but muscle relaxers and Naproxen help the pain, but still don’t know exactly what it is. Massage therapist does a ‘lymphatic drainage’ that seems to help but makes me sick to my stomach and extremely tired.. Any information would be helpful….

    My father-in -law has a lump on his lower back about the size of a grapefruit.According to my mother-in-law in 1979 (the year I was born) she receive a call from their doctor stating he found a spot on his spine. So so many years later we have a grapefruit on his back. For the last week he has been in alot of pain. Barely able to stnd or walk. Yet he still refuses to go to the doctor to get checked out and we don’t know what to do.

    I had fallen down two stairs last weekend, landed on my bottom and was ok. Three days later I have found a lump which is in line with my spine and is sore, especially sitting on a chair as the back of the chair is touching it. I just wondered if you could advise me.

    I have just found a lump that seems to be attached to my spine and is soft it doesnt really have any sensation but now I have seen it I can feel it all the time. I am going to the doctor and don’t know what to expect of them and would like to know what they should do to test what it is?

    Avatar

    Oh, by all means, go get it looked at, no matter WHAT you think it could be. Cancers are too scarey to mess around with.Having said that, My father, mother and brother all have weird little lumps all along near the spine, that don’t really hurt. The Dr. says they’re just cysts. It really could be nothing, and it really could be something. Be insistant with your doctors. Make them really get this checked out! It may be nothing major… but if it is major… better to find it when it’s managable than after it’s too late.

    I too have a lump in my lower back about 1-2 inches from spine. It feels hard, and when my back starts to get tired or if I stretch a certain way, it causes pain in the area. It feels like it is about .75 -1 inch in diameter. I think I noticed it 1st, 2 months ago. But I also have a lump in my right armpit about 1 inch. (for 4 months or more) and am going for ultrasound for both in 5 weeks. I am worried though. Dr.s don’t know yet but guess it is a cyst….
