I noticed a small plum like lump on my lower right side of back ?
I’m a 26 year old male. I don’t take any meds at this time.. I noticed a small plum like lump on my lower right side of back about a week ago also have leg pain on right side light to mild. I first noticed this when I would go to the gym doing heavy lifting for shoulders also dead lifts. Didn’t think of it as anything at the time.. But randomly out of know where I decided to feel my back and that’s what I found.. But this time I was doing another workout where u lay down and pull the weight over your head to your chest.
Most probably this could be a bursitis (inflamed bursa) or a fibrosis in a muscle secondary to muscle strain in the past..
Your leg pain if it is light it could be due to either a very small disc bulge or piriformis syndrome.
Get examined by an orthopedist to know which of these is causing your leg pain(disc or piriformis).
Then you may need 6-8sessions of physical therapy to treat your problem..
it seems to be a subcutaneous lipoma.
if a nerve is entangled in the lump,then it may cause pain in back and leg.
gentle massage by applying analgesic gels,hot fomentation may help.
if this doesn’t help,then you may need MRI with / without excision of the lump (depending upon the MRI reports)
SUCH SWELLING IF MOBILE THEN ,IT CAN BE FATTY TISSUE.
IF IMMOBILE THEN CHANCES OF A NEUROFIBROMA ARE HIGH.
A HIGH RESOLUTION ULTRASOUND SCAN OF THE LESION CAN BE DONE TO LOOK FOR ITS CONTENTS.
METHYCOBAL TABLETS AND ANTI INFLAMMTORY ANALGESICS WILL HELP ALLEVIATE PAIN
In my opinion you have a disc lesion grade 2 , you need to do an MRI to confirm before explaining your next step
Till then avoid sitting and try bed rest
it may be subcutaneous nodule that may be a incidental finding.
pain in the leg may be due to sciatica or a slipped lumbar disc.
get MRI done,consult orthopedist
I do advice you to do x ray on the pelvic ,
Examinting the lump is a must,
Its form, is it cystic, firm, hard,
If it is movable , or fixed with and without ms contraction
If you can send photo for it
Pain can be due to the vigorous exercise in gym…
Use for now pain killers and seek an advice from physiotherapist and from your PCP
