Question: hard pea sized lump under skin in lower back


 farmgal - Sun Feb 26, 2006 4:04 am

I'm 50, female, nothing particularly noteworthy about my health. Am having lower back pain, when massagingit I found a hard, round, pea size lump above the "dimple" in my lower left back. Is this something to be concerned about? Could there be lymph glands there, or should I be concerned about a tumor?

User avatar Hello,

This isnt a location where you would find an enlarged lymph node. If you are still feeling a swelling especially if it continues to grow then you should get it checked out.

Best regards.
