Avatar f tn I found a lump on my lower back on my spine above my hip on left side. It is under the skin. I have also been having migraines, cold symptoms, wheezing, tachicardia, dizziness, blurred vision. 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 don't feel right about all of this.
Avatar n tn I'm a smoker but I tend to be healthy with the exception of the occasional cold. Recently I have noticed a 'lump' on the right side of my spine at the base of my skull. I don't know how long it's been there, but the last couple of days my neck has been stiff. I'm not experiencing headaches. I'm just wondering what the most affordable approach to diagnosis might be...
Avatar f tn However, right below the bra line on my back, I noticed ab a year ago a big squishy lump over my spine. 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 spine as well. I have a high pain tolerance, and it's chronic enough to keep me up at night a lot for ab the past 2 years off and on. Lately it seems worse.
1055604 tn?1254243338 My husband and myself recently discovered on her back a lump about midway to lower area to the left her spine. When you press on it, she claims it doesn't hurt. I was wondering if anyone 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 spine, it feels like sort of fibrous tissue and sort of goes diagonally across my 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 circulation.

Avatar f tn Hi I am a 25 year old female. About 3 years ago I discovered a lump on 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 explaination) 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 on the right hand side of my spine facing my ear. It is extremly painful when I touch it. I had not paid much attention to it.

Avatar n tn This is the third time this small bump has appeared right on my spine. It is hard. My skin moves over it. The two previous times it dissipated after several days. (First pain disappears, then the bump goes away. At least I think it does.) The second time it happened I went to Primary Care and had an x-ray. Results were normal. By then it was gone 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 spine surgery a year ago this month and about 2 months ago I noticed a hard knot that had formed on my spine where my incision is. I didn;t think anything about it until another dr of mine had seen it and said i needed to see my surgeon 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 on her cancer and has been told she has 2 months to live, this was 3 weeks ago.) I have noticed a lump around 6 cms diam on her spine upper back. She has had it for a year and was told that it is fluid. Could this be the contributing factor to her pelvic pain that has been overlooked?
Avatar n tn I recently found a very deep lump on the back of my neck on top of my spine 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 long 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 sensations on top of my shoulders, and am guessing that this is related.

Avatar n tn I have a lipoma on my right lower back (not on my spine) that I had my doctor feel three years ago. She sent me to a general surgeon just to get a second opinion. The GS said it felt very benign, and that he didn't feel that anything needed to be done 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 I have a painful Hard lump on spine upper middle of back..I fell about 4 weeks ago and injured my neck..
Avatar m tn Hello Everyone, This morning I discovered a lump located directly on top of my spine 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 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 on it there is a specific spot that hurts on this bone 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 anyone knows what this could be?
Avatar n tn Also monitor your ESR and Complete blood count regularly. Imaging study on periodic basis is important to see the status of spine and also for prognostication. Keep me posted if you have any queries. Bye.

864831 tn?1243622272 I'm not sure if having the LP damaged something in your spine or not. I can tell you that I have horrible pain in my back. On my MRI it showed that from the 2nd to 7th vertebra I have complete demyelination. I know you know this but just in case someone doesn't, that means that the insulation (myelin) is gone 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 on an MRI?
