Lump On The Lower Left?
Tonight I want to ask my father on his lower left lower back there is a lump when touched pain in the abdomen also often hurts and is very difficult to walk. Continue joints until the fingers also feel pain. His skin felt burning and itchy. The body is so weak why is that?
Lumps in the back can be caused by infection, allergic reactions, skin disorders and underlying tissues, tumors, and so on. Some of the conditions below can cause a bump on the back, including:
Lipoma, is a lump under the skin formed from fat tissue. Lipomas can get bigger, grow slowly and are generally harmless. The characteristic of this lump is that it feels dense soft to the touch, has no skin discoloration, and is generally painless. Pain usually occurs when the size of a large lipoma and pressing nerves around it. Surgery can be done if the bump disturbs appearance or is located in an area that interferes with movement.
Seborrhoeic keratosis looks like a wart or dark spot on the skin. The back, shoulders and chest are the areas where siboroic kerotosis usually appears. Seborrheic keratosis includes benign lumps. Generally, these lumps do not hurt and do not require special treatment. If the patient wants, surgery can be done to remove the lump.
Epidermoid cysts, benign lumps that develop under the skin. These cysts usually arise due to the buildup of keratin, which is a natural protein found in skin cells.
Epidermoid cysts appear round, dark in color, and filled with white fluid like pus. When infected, epidermoid cysts will redden, ooze pus, and feel painful to the touch.
Dermatofibroma, lumps on the skin that tend to be small in size, ranging from 0.5 to 1 cm. Dermatofibroma can be pink or brownish. These lumps are painless and usually do not interfere. Surgery or laser therapy can be done to remove this lump.
To determine the underlying disease, a physical examination is needed directly by the doctor. Investigations such as biopsy may be needed if the shape of the lump is not typical or there is a suspicion towards malignancy / cancer.
For other complaints that are felt by your father, it could be caused by other conditions both acute (recent) or chronic (long course). Should be taken to the doctor for a direct examination, because the complaints are felt quite a lot and varied, so that a lot of differential diagnoses are possible and impossible to determine one type of disease only from such complaints. It is necessary to trace the history of complaints, treatment history, disease history, and a thorough physical examination to determine the appropriate diagnosis. Diseases experienced can be interconnected or not between each other.
Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
