Big Bump On My Lower Back?

Postby Dekanawida » Sat Oct 07, 2017 4:33 am

Please read.

One day my friend pointed it out, I realized then it was not normal. I remember noticing it last year, but I don't know how long exactly I have had it. It is right above my butt, on the spine. It is not hard, it squishy. It sticks out.

Here is a pic of a back, I drew a red circle where my bump is, and that how about how big it would be on my back.

It does not always cause me pain, but sometimes my back hurts around there. Also I'll admit I have very bad posture, I'm trying to fix that.

My grandma looked at it and said It was not normal, my dad says it could be spinal fluid leaking out and that would not be good? My mom is making a doctors appointment. But for the time being does anyone know what it might be?

possibly a protrusion of the meninges called a meningocele.
