| | Large "mass" on lower left side of back
So I've been having pretty major pain in my lower back on my left side for quite some time. I've also been incredibly sick and in and out of the hospital for the last month for weakness, syncope, pain, and low grade fevers that won't pass, dizziness, etc.
Well today I was rubbing my back while curled up in the fetal position and realized the part of my back has a very large mass of some sort. I cannot tell if it is my kidney swollen (I've had kidney stones, but passed all of them) or some other sort of growth. It is about 6-8 inches tall, as wide as that side of my back and is bumped out about 2-3 inches higher than normal. It is more than just swelling, I can actually palpate it some (it's very painful) and can move the large "mass" about.
I've been seeing my doctor nearly every week to figure out why I have been so sick and the decline has been rapid over the last few months. I really would like to be educated on what this might be before I go in. To be honest I'm quite concerned with this new development.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
