I have noticed a small quite bizarre lump the size of a pea on my spine and it hasn't been there before. It doesn't hurt or anything so I don't want to waste the doctors time if I don't need too. I was just wondering if anyone has had this before or whether you think I should consult my doctor?????
Thanks xx :?

The description of the lumps does not help to make a proper diagnosis.

The lesions could be either benign enlarged lymph nodes, fat collections like Lipoma, normal bony prominences of the spine or infected skin glands.

A proper examination in person would be necessary to provide specific opinion. Hence consult your doctor at the earliest.
