I have sore pain with a lump in my lower back on my right

This answer was rated:

I have sore pain with a lump in my lower back on my right side. there is no inflamation visible on the surface but the lump is tender to the touch. it has just started for the past couple of weeks. What could this be?

How long are you having this?

How large it is?



Is it increasing in size?

Exact site?

Did you have any test or treatment?

Did you have any other symptom or previous illness?

Thank you.

I have had it about 4 weeks now.

It is the size of a marble but not as round, more oval and some what flat.

It is kind of hard but not rock hard.

I can move it with pain.

I really havne't had it that long so I can't tell if it changeing in size

1 inch by 1/2 inch in size.

No test or treatments

I have noticed that I have more of appetite than I have had in a long time. But I get full very quick. I also feel weak and tired a lot. Not really as active as I have been.

Thank you for the information,

The optional information & already tried parts reached me just with the reply.

The possibilities are an enlarged lymph node , a cyst like epidermoid cyst or lipoma.

Most of them are benign in nature.

However an examination by doctor is necessary to distinguish between them.

I hope this information will be helpful.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.
