Avatar_f_tn I found a lump <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my lower back <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>spine</span> above my hip <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> left side. It is under the skin. I have also been having migraines, cold symptoms, wheezing, tachicardia, dizziness, blurred visibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on. Do I have something to worry about? I also developed a swollen throat out of nowhere which the doc said was the cold, but I just dbackground-color: #dae8f4'>on't feel right about all of this.
Avatar_n_tn I'm a smoker but I tend to be healthy with the exceptibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on of the occasibackground-color: #dae8f4'>onal cold. Recently I have noticed a 'lump' <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the right side of my <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>spine</span> at the base of my skull. I dbackground-color: #dae8f4'>on't know how lbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ong it's been there, but the last couple of days my neck has been stiff. I'm not experiencing headaches.

Avatar_f_tn However, right below the bra line <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my back, I noticed ab a year ago a big squishy lump over my <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>spine</span>. It's not hard, but it does seem to move if pushed around. Weird and gross I know. Lol. I seem to have a lot of back pain right above it around my background-color: #dae8f4'>spine as well. I have a high pain tolerance, and it's chrbackground-color: #dae8f4'>onic enough to keep me up at night a lot for ab the past 2 years off and background-color: #dae8f4'>on. Lately it seems worse.
1055604_tn?1254243338 My husband and myself recently discovered <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> her back a lump about background-color: #dae8f4'>midway to lower area to the left her <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>spine</span>. When you press <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> it, she claims it doesn't hurt. I was wbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ondering if anybackground-color: #dae8f4'>one else has encountered this with their child?? If so, what did it turn out to be?? I'm in the process of getting her into her Pediatrician, but Im very anxious. Thanks for your help.
Avatar_f_tn However last week I noticed a lump across my <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>spine</span>, it feels like sort of fibrous tissue and sort of goes diagbackground-color: #dae8f4'>onally across my background-color: #dae8f4'>spine, just over halfway down my back. I ride and compete horses a lot and often have neck and back pain for a few days afterwards. But at the moment I have had an aching neck and back for a while. I also have pins and needles in my hands, arms, hips, legs and feet. I'm not sure if it is related, as I often have bad circulatibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on.

Avatar_n_tn I was petting my husky and i felt a lump by his back <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>spine</span>. I was thinking it could be a cist or fatty tumor. It just popped up. How can I tell the difference?
Avatar_f_tn Hi I am a 25 year old female. About 3 years ago I discovered a lump <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my forearm. it was tiny, but I could feel it. I did go to the doctor and he said to not worry it will go away (No real explainatibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on) I noticed that it has been growing. It feels like a marble. And is sore when I press it. This morning I woke up with a new lum at the back of my neck. It is background-color: #dae8f4'>on the right hand side of my background-color: #dae8f4'>spine facing my ear. It is extremly painful when I touch it. I had not paid much attentibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on to it.
Avatar_n_tn Hi i have a hard lump under my skin <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the back of my neck almost where my head and neck meet. Its hard and about the size of a marble. can some background-color: #dae8f4'>one help me. it hads been here a while but seems to have gotten a little bigger. i do not smoke.
Avatar_n_tn This is the third time this small background-color: #dae8f4'>bump has appeared right <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>spine</span>. It is hard. My skin moves over it. The two previous times it dissipated after several days. (First pain disappears, then the background-color: #dae8f4'>bump goes away. At least I think it does.) The secbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ond time it happened I went to Primary Care and had an x-ray. Results were normal. By then it was gbackground-color: #dae8f4'>one and they said if it's not bothering me I should wait and see. The next step would be an MRI. They really did not seem to know what it was.
Avatar_n_tn I had posterior cervical background-color: #dae8f4'>spine surgery a year ago this mbackground-color: #dae8f4'>onth and about 2 mbackground-color: #dae8f4'>onths ago I noticed a hard knot that had formed <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>spine</span> where my incisibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on is. I didn;t think anything about it until another dr of mine had seen it and said i needed to see my surgebackground-color: #dae8f4'>on again because she thought it could be a cyst. Has anybody ever experienced this and if so what was it?
Avatar_n_tn (She has been in radiotherapy etc, but this has had little effect background-color: #dae8f4'>on her cancer and has been told she has 2 mbackground-color: #dae8f4'>onths to live, this was 3 weeks ago.) I have noticed a lump around 6 cms diam <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> her <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>spine</span> upper back. She has had it for a year and was told that it is fluid. Could this be the cbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ontributing factor to her pelvic pain that has been overlooked?
Avatar_n_tn I recently found a very deep lump <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the back of my neck <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> top of my <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>spine</span> and extending to the right. At first I thought it was a muscle not because I noticed it while sitting at the computer for a lbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ong time doing a project and it began to hurt. It has not decreased or increased in size within the week that i have noticed it. I am having some tingling sensatibackground-color: #dae8f4'>ons background-color: #dae8f4'>on top of my shoulders, and am guessing that this is related.
Avatar_n_tn I have a lipoma <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my right lower back (not <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>spine</span>) that I had my doctor feel three years ago. She sent me to a general surgebackground-color: #dae8f4'>on just to get a secbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ond opinibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on. The GS said it felt very benign, and that he didn't feel that anything needed to be dbackground-color: #dae8f4'>one about it (no pain with that lipoma at all.. and as far as I can tell, it hasn't grown or anything).
Avatar_n_tn we got her massaged <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> back and <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> legs but the cbackground-color: #dae8f4'>onditibackground-color: #dae8f4'>oned worsened and she is not able to move even for the toilet.we people are worried and need advice.please any doctor reading let me know what is this and what we can do?whether it is background-color: #dae8f4'>spine cbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ongetibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on?

Avatar_m_tn Hello Everybackground-color: #dae8f4'>one, This morning I discovered a lump located directly <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> top of my <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>spine</span> that is right where my shoulders meet my neck. It was not there yesteday evening so it essentially appeared overnight. The lump is hard, and is about the size of a marble. I can sort of move it back and forth but other than that it stays put. I am not experiencing any sort of pain or discomfort, and I can really background-color: #dae8f4'>only see the lump when I am looking down and trying to epose it.
Avatar_n_tn I asked him why it is different now then it was then and he said if I had significant weight loss recently that it would (I have not) and when he was pushing around <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> it there is a specific spot that hurts <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> this bbackground-color: #dae8f4'>one or lump or whatever it is which I told him that it is tender when he pushes and he had no answer for that. He prescribed me muscle relaxers and told me to stretch.. which I have. I wasn't 100% sure about this diagnosis and wanted to ask if anybackground-color: #dae8f4'>one knows what this could be?

864831_tn?1243622272 I'm not sure if having the LP damaged something in your <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>spine</span> or not. I can tell you that I have horrible pain in my back. <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my MRI it showed that from the 2nd to 7th vertebra I have complete demyelinatibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on. I know you know this but just in case somebackground-color: #dae8f4'>one doesn't, that means that the insulatibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on (myelin) is gbackground-color: #dae8f4'>one and my nerves are bare. Even just moving certain ways can cause the worst pain I could ever imagine and I've had 3 children. Have you had anything like that show up background-color: #dae8f4'>on an MRI?
