Question: lump on back
|janehson - Sun Aug 22, 2004 11:17 pm||
I developed a very sore lump on my lower back near the spine a few days ago. It is very sore. It is ok if I am in one position and not moving, but really hurts if I move at all. Very sore to the touch. Getting up from chair/bed or getting into chair/bed especially. I have been icing, but it hasn't gotten better. You can actually see the lump (about 1" by 2") and it feels hard. I have been having trouble with my back for awhile, lower back, upper back and neck. First time I've had anything this bad. I've been having pain in upper arms and forearms and hands are sore also.

You have to see your doctor as this might be an abcess or an infected cyst that need to be drained and you might need to receive antibiotics.
Thank you very much for using our website http://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.
