  • Any other symptoms? What does the hump look like?Have you seen a doctor yet?You might want to look up Cushing's syndrome and see if you have any of the other symptoms and follow through with a doctor on this. It could also be from osteoporosis or lots of other things- better get it checked out.Best Wishes

  • It could also just be an Upper Thoracic Hump aka Hump Pattern. If you're an older person, maybe Bowager's Hump. There are also things called Protense Paunch if you've taken HIV medication. Check these out and see if you find anything relating to your situation.
