Lower Back Lump - Hot to touch

My husband has a lump on the left lower side of his back which has grown from the size of a pea to about 2 inches in diameter and 1 inch long it is hot to the touch; his doctor said it was nothing...he is constantly throwing his back out and we don't know if that lump has anything to do with it. Any suggestions?

Re: Lower Back Lump - Hot to touch

Hi welcome the the boards

IF the Dr said the lump was nothing to worry about, what reason did the doc give for him "throwing his back out?"

sorry - no idea what the lump could be

Re: Lower Back Lump - Hot to touch

Is it right by the dimple on the butt, one on each side? It is most likely synovial fluid. They call them back mice. I have several of them that are inflammed and hurt like heck because of my SI joint. They show up on a CT scan and you can feel them. If they become too bothersome, you can have them drained. It is the bodies way of trying to protect a joint. At least mine are.

See if taking an anti-inflammatory makes the swelling go down. Also, ice helps.
