My partner won't go to the doctor. He has had a lump on his lower back for over three years. I forgot about it until I felt it again yesterday. Hurts when pushed. Lump not very big and hasn't seemed to have gotten bigger since I last remember feeling it. I am worried but he just wont see a doctor.

  • i think it its sebseous cyst (sebsous gland )which inflamed &infect this need excision and biopsy Well I also have a lump on my left lower side back. I have been to the doctor and it is a Cyst. I also had one in my arm that looked ugly and I hat it removed, however the one on the back they said is more complicated because it is in the back muscles. it hurts a little bit when pushed on or bumped and it is a little noticeable, but if they were to remove it then there would be in impression and would look worse. for the most part they said just live with it, no big deal. Just monitor it size. But as with anything, next time your at the Dr. office have them look at it. :)
