Customer Question

I feel this hard like lump near the tail end of my spine at the very top of my botox.. it moves and feels like a bone. My guess is its not the tail end of the spine
JA: How long have you had the lump? Is it hard or soft?
Customer: honestly i never really noticed it.. i think i have felt in the past... and its hard feels like a bone
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: where the spine kinda curves into the botox is where i then feel it.. my guess is its just the coccyx

HelloIt might be the end of the coccyx if it is hard.If it is like a lump in the skin, then it is a cyst.This needs an examination.If there is pain and swelling, a pilonidal cyst.
