Painful lump on left side lower back?
Some years ago I had a lump on the right side of my lower back--I didn't even know when it first appeared--one day it was just there! Even though it was painless I went to a doctor who diagnosed it as a keloid--unfortunately I listened to that quack! Overtime (years) the lump, which started off about the size of a peanut m & m, formed a flat mass around it. It got painful (coming and going) and oftentimes it felt like a deep burning sensation and a pulling pain on the right side of my lower back and in the surrounding skin and muscles. I went to another doctor who did a CAT scan and biopsy and found that the lump was cancerous (I was lucky because the cancer was confined only to the lump and had not spread). I then had surgery to completely remove the lump and mass. Because I trusted the first doctor's opinion I waited too long and had to have a lot of extra tissue, muscle, and skin removed--leaving a large scar. Don't take chances--your ability to walk in the future could be affected if the lump is too close to your spine--I was lucky that mine was not. See a doctor right away--and for Christ's sake--get a second opinion too! Good Luck!

You should be asking a doctor this. Medical opinions shouldn't be searched for on the internet, that should be left to people who can examine you and know what they see. You'l…l find plenty of these people in places called hospitals. yes and you should make and appointment with a medical person, and get that checked out,

i have a hard spot on the back left side of my neck, not pea size. more of like a muscle. child's fist size.could that be just a permanent knot in my neck? or something to wor…ry about? ask doctor
A strained or pulled muscle, you may also have sciatica, a trip to the chiropracter would be a good idea.
Anything going on in the left side, is always a good reason for concern that where your heart is. If its sharp pain, located front & center in your chest, or takes your breath… away, get to a Dr or emergency room & have it checked out. If the pain is low & in the back just above the belt line, It could be your kidneys. If you drink a lot of tea, coffee or soda & no water, just stop those for a few days & drink only & lots of water for 2 days & see if that flushes the kidneys. That is very common, specially in young people.
It is most likely a Lipomas; or "Fatty Lumps" It is a noncancerous tumor, and can come about from either genetics or a heavy/hard blow to the area. Lipomas can affect anyone o…f any age, but are more common with middle aged and older people. Lipomas can occur anywhere on the body where there is fatty tissue.
See your doc. This could be a sign of appendicites. Also, a pulled muscle. It's no appendicitis.. you appendix is in the lower right abdomen... It may be a kidney infectio…n..
If the pain is in the soft area above your hips it's probably a bladder or kidney problem. Drink lots of cranberry juice and see if it goes away.
Well I only have been studying this sort of thing for six mouths but sounds like one of the nerves might have been enlarged some how push closer to the surface causing the lum…p I'd still get it checked out buy a doctor first chance id get it painful if I'm right because there is less skin blocking it that close ok you know that the palm of you hand feels wierd when you run you finger over it ? this is caused by a nerve and as you can tell the closer a nerve is the more feeling it get Realy I'd see a doctor .
try stretching the pelvis: lie on your back bring the front of your leg (quad) up towards you using your hands cross fingered and placed behind your knee. bring it gently …to towards your chest until your feel a slight stretch. Now while it this position, put your clasped hands in front of the knee and gently push your knee away in the opposite direction to the stretch before. and hold (you should feel a discomfort where your leg joins your bum on the inside leg) repeat this alternation 5 times each and do it 1 or 2 times a day. comment here if it helps!
what can cause myclomalacia
burning pain on left side of lower back
what is a hard lump that does not move on the lower left side of the back. what is a hard lump that does not move on the lower left side of the back. That would be your hip
If the pain is stabbing and intense, and radiates, it's consistent with nerve compression pain caused by either a bulging disk or a disk that's fully herniated. If the pain go…es down the back of your legs, it's the Sciatic nerve being compressed by the L4/5 or L5/S1 disk; if the pain stops at the inside of the knee, it's the L3/4 disk nerve being compressed. Regardless, the treatment is the same - get off your feet, and lie down. Sitting is out as it also puts pressure on the lower spine. If it lasts in its intensity for more than 3 days, you'll probably require an Epidural or Facet Injection (local or targeted steroid injections to reduce inflammation) so that the disk can retract and heal. However, be aware that for most, the shots and resulting pain are as bad or worse than the pain it's intended to deal with. In the years when I still got benefit from shots, it generally took 2 or 3 days for the pain from the injection to subside. Muscle spasms caused by the pain of the nerve compression adds to the problem, and is the reason muscle relaxers are commonly prescribed. As the muscles / tendons contract during pain spasms, the area around the nerve becomes tighter, increasing the nerve compression and subsequently the pain. It's a vicious cycle. As I said, pain lasting in intensity for more than 2 or 3 days needs to be checked by a doctor. The severity of the pain also can give you an indication of just how bad the problem is - if you can walk without support (cane, etc.) then it's not that bad, but still should be checked anyway. If you can walk but need support, then it's more serious and you should hve it checked immediately.
Let me start of by saying that you have to go to a doc for a difinitive answer. I'm gonna give you a diffrential diagnosis, so it can be any of these things (or even none of t…hese since I don't have your medical history). The area you're describing contains your kidney. You couldve even pulled a muscle and that's why it hurts. Does it burn when you pee? What color is your pee? Do you drink enough water? Now, if it is your kidneys. You could have pyelonephritis(kidney infection, if uve had a uti for a looong time and didn't get it treated soon. The infection couldve spread up to your kidney) or a kidney stone.
THere are a few possible causes for this, if it's not a kidney problem, it could be muscle strain, pullled muscle, sciatcia, bulgind or herniated disc, it really depends on yo…ur sumptoms. You should get checked by a doctor. Until then you can use the website in the resource here, to help diagnose yourself, according to your symptoms.
