Hi I hope someone read this message and help me out,

I have a sister who have a strange thing on her back I can’t even explain what it is, at first was like a small point but now is a little larger and it’s growing hair, at first it didn’t hurt but is now causing pain to rest of her body and it pain terribly when she rest on her back, worst of all is it too close to her spine. We have seen several doctors but they said they have no idea what it is, and are afraid even to touch it, because as I said before is very close to her spine. we’re very concerned about this, I am attaching a picture with the hope that a good doctor who knows about this can attend.

I trust in God I'll get an answer soon.
