What is this lump/bump on my mid back?

Hi,

A couple of weeks ago, I noticed a small marble sized lump on my mid back. It's hard to reach or see in a mirror, but it's not discolored. It just felt the size of a marble under my skin. I thought I'd just watch it. It didn't hurt.

Today, I reached up to feel it and over the past couple of weeks, it's more the size of a 1/2 dollar. It's still not discolored. It doesn't hurt per se, but just knowing it's there, I feel something, but maybe it's from touching it so much checking on it.

I work out a lot and it's been hot. I had a hysterectomy 6 months ago so I'm sweating a lot more. When doing my cardio, I wear a nylon sports bra that I sweat like a pig in. My bra in the back covers the lump so it gets all sweaty. My lump gets no air. Could sweat have something to do with it? I'll probably keep watching it for another week and see what it does.

What could it be? Cyst?

Thanks for any guesses.

I'm not one to run to doctors and I'm pretty healthy. I just had a complete physical 3 months ago with a clean bill of health.

I did get laid off of work 3 months ago so I have no insurance. That's another reason why I'm not running off to the doctor.

Thanks so much for any quesses.

I'd monitor it. It sounds like it may be a cyst.

Thanks Mountain Reader. Hopefully that's all it is.

My guess is that it's a lypoma... which is fatty tissue, cyst, benign tumor. I just went to see a dr. for this... nothing you can do, and it is not harmful.

You did say you work out alot, although it could be a cyst it could also be a knot in your mid back from working out and not stretching etc..

Do you stretch before hand and after? your back?
