I have a question, has anybody ever heard of a back lesion? A little history on my situation, in 99 I herniated disk L4-L5 and in 01 I was in a auto accident in which my car was totaled, my head hit the roof and really messed up my already hurt disc. Today I called the back doc and his nurse said something about a lesion.. Thanks all..
Welcome to the board! What kind of lesion are you talking about? Is it a skin lesion on the back or a dics lesion? I am guessing you are talking about a disc lesion in the lower spine in the lumbar area right?
What else did the nurse say? Was it an MRI result or some other test result? What are your symptoms if any?
Sorry so many questions.

I TOO HAVE RECENTLY BEEN TOLD I HAVE A LESION IN MY BACK. MY INFORMATION WAS A LITTLE MORE SPECIFIC THOUGH. I WAS TOLD THAT I HAVE A LESION ON MY PERIPHERAL NERVE THAT IS CAUSING SOME OF MY CONDITIONS. THE BEST INFORMATION I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO FIND WAS AT A U.C.L.A. PERIPHERAL NERVE WEB SITE. I'M NOT SURE IF WE ARE ALLOWED TO LEAVE WEB-SITES ON THIS POST. IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO FIND IT AND ARE STILL INTERESTED, LEAVE ANOTHER POST HERE AND I WILL FIND IT. PLEASE IF YOU FIND ANYTHING ELSE LEAVE THAT TO.
GOOD LUCK IN YOUR SEARCH, A FRIEND
Hi all thamks for the replies,
The doctor that I seen was a back doc who had me take another MRI and thats where the nurse said lesion. My guess in would be on my herniated disc or close by. I also have spondylolysis and spondylolisthesis at L4-L5 with increase in anterior-posterior dimension of the boney spinal canal. That was the first MRI . The last one says grade one anterolisthesis of L4 in relation to L5 and central herniation of the disc with cephalad extension.. Can someone put this into english for me, whats the difference.. Thanks all...
