Post Lumps in back What are they?

My husband asked me to post a question for him.
He has two walnut sized lumps under his skin on his lower back. There was only one but another one has grown right next to it. He says they are very painful and hurt and have a burning feeling to the touch. He has been to a doctor for other back problems and the doc had to have seen these but said nothing. You can slightly see them under the skin and can feel them by rubbing your hand over the spot.
Does anyone know what these could be?

I have no experience with this, but I would go to the dr and get it checked out. Make sure to point them out to the dr though, or else he will not know that is what you are there for. Could be growths of some kind. How big are they? (the size of a pea, the size of a golfball, etc...)

I go along wih purple. You need to go to a doctor and
be sure that your husband specifically tells the doctor
about these.
