Dr. Shahzad MD :

hi

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Since how long have you had this?

Customer: Hi are u Iranian?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

I am from the subcontinent

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Can you please mention since how long are you having this problem?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Have you had a fine needle aspiration test for this as yet?

Customer: I just noticed 5 days ago
Dr. Shahzad MD :

does it hurt?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Or cause any other symptoms?

Customer: Like wat?
Customer: Ur name is ***** ***** are u Indian?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Customer: Oh ok tnx
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Does your lump hurt or cause any symptoms?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

like itching

Dr. Shahzad MD :

please let me know.

Customer: What is the meaning by hurt wen I'm touch it ?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

like when you press on the lump does it cause you to have pain?

Customer: No
Customer: No pain
Customer: No itching
Dr. Shahzad MD :

The most common cause of a movable lump on the back is a lipoma

Dr. Shahzad MD :

which is a harmless tumor

Dr. Shahzad MD :

and nothing to worry about

Dr. Shahzad MD :

other causes include cysts in the back

Dr. Shahzad MD :

so MOST LIKELY this lump is nothing serious or anything to worry about a great deal

Dr. Shahzad MD :

if this is bothering you, then you should get it removed by surgery

Customer: But I think I have 4 to 5
Customer: Doc wat is that price 1,172
Customer: Bcoz wen I subscrip in this site I paid 2684 p
Dr. Shahzad MD :

oh okay

Dr. Shahzad MD :

well, if you have four to five it goes more in favor of a lipoma

Dr. Shahzad MD :

because lipomas are multiple

Dr. Shahzad MD :

The price for this question is 12 dollars

Dr. Shahzad MD :

24 dollars sorry

Dr. Shahzad MD :

and you can click accept if you found my response helpful

Customer: What is ur speciality?
Customer: I done ultrasoun 3 times they said no mass
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Have you had a needle biopsy?

Customer: Yes it was fibrolipomatous only one one of them
Customer: They are in my lower Back each side of spine
Customer: Buu ultra sound showed no mass
Dr. Shahzad MD :

does not matter if the ultrasound showed any mass or not

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If the needle biopsy showed fibrolipomatous it confirms the diagnosis.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Even if ultrasound did not show a mass

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So my initial assessment was correct :)

Customer: How did u know I had needle biopsy I didn't mention above
Customer: For each accept is24$?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

This is a live chat session so you only get one accept option

Customer: And if click several time they get several time payment it's not fair
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So if you would click accept for me I would appreciate it

Customer: So what is add fund?
Customer: I'm confused with this web site no body answering from costumer service
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Add fund is when your funds are finishe

Dr. Shahzad MD :

finished

Dr. Shahzad MD :

and you wish to continue asking questions

Dr. Shahzad MD :

at the present moment you still have funds

Dr. Shahzad MD :

by which you can accept this question

Dr. Shahzad MD :

are you there

Customer: What is unlimited subscription it means they can charge any amour from my cruder card?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

unlimited subscription is when you can ask any number of questions for the entire month and they charge a specific amount only once in the beginning and you will know that amount

Customer: So if change to not unlimited ?
Customer: What is add fund?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

add fund is when you are out of funds and you wish to ask a question

Dr. Shahzad MD :

for instance you want to ask only one question so you add that amount of money

Dr. Shahzad MD :

for example you want to ask a question by putting in 16 dollars you just add that amount to add funds and ask a question

Dr. Shahzad MD :

this way you will not need a subscription and can add funds one at a time for each question that you ask

Customer: But my subscription was unlimited my balance is 0 now why!
Dr. Shahzad MD :

If your subscription is unlimited then there is no need to worry

Dr. Shahzad MD :

you can accept as many questions as you wish

Dr. Shahzad MD :

the balance that is shown is only for those people who have deposited a balanced and not used it

Dr. Shahzad MD :

if you have a subscription, i.e. unlimited you can ask questions, any number that you wish

Dr. Shahzad MD :

just ignore the 0 balance

Dr. Shahzad MD :

that does not mean anything in your case

Doctor: Dr. SH, Board Certified Physician replied 6 years ago

Wat kind of movement it mens it should go around?
Doctor: Dr. SH, Board Certified Physician replied 6 years ago
Fixed means not movable under the skin at all. Movable mean you can hold it and move it around under the skin a bit. It does not mean that the lump which is located in the lower back can be moved to the upper back or another location. It only means it is movable a little bit from its place and when you leave it, it comes back to its place. PLEASE CLICK THE ACCEPT BUTTON AS I HAVE GIVEN YOU A LOT OF TIME AND ANSWERED ALL YOUR QUESTIONS.

Who is the best specialist fo back area ? For clinically examination?
Doctor: Dr. SH, Board Certified Physician replied 6 years ago
I think for lumps such as yours I would recommend that you contact a general surgeon so that if these lumps require removal you can have them removed. However you can start of with a GP (general practitioner).PLEASE CLICK THE ACCEPT BUTTON AS I HAVE GIVEN YOU A LOT OF TIME AND ANSWERED ALL YOUR QUESTIONS

Wat is back mouse?
Doctor: Dr. SH, Board Certified Physician replied 6 years ago
Well, as far as I am concerned a needle biopsy has confirmed your diagnosis. There is no need for further tests. The needle biopsy has suggested lipofibromatous changes which is the diagnosis. From here on you do not require further tests.
