Ok so i have this lump in my lower back close to my spine, and ive had it for a year and a half now , at first it was the size of a pea , now it is the size of a golf ball maybe bigger. im just a little worried... it gives me pain a lot , sometimes fevers , or no sleep ,headaces , sharp pain a lot , then about a 3 weeks ago i had to go to the hospital and i had cellulitis in my back , on the other side of my lump. And now where i had cellulitis another lump is forming and i have been in lots of pain. Im just wondering if anyone knows what this could be? im a little worried...

- Someone please HELP me out! =/

Im sorry I have no clue what's going on with the lump./:
I say make an appointment with your regular doctor, and get tests done. The E.R cant do much.
So yeah, make an appointment ASAP, do not miss it.
You want to make sure its not too serious.
Goodluck!

I'd suggest making an appointment with your Doctor and have it looked at. I went to school for Surgical Technology and from what it sounds like it could be the cellulitis again or a possible tumor DON'T be alarmed not all tumors are cancerous. The best way to find out is test being ran by your physician. The reason behind the pain is due to the area it's in, it's possible it's pinching nerves and cutting off circulation.

Hope this helps! You'll be in my prayers!
