The Cause Of A Lump In The Spine Feels Pain?
hello, I’m 28 years old … I want to ask about 2 years ago I found there was a lump in the spine. But it wasn’t too big. .and the lumps that were smaller now are getting bigger in diameter … does that include pinched nerves … please explain.
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Lumps in the spine can be a symptom of the following conditions of the disease, namely:
1. Spondylolisthesis, which is a shift in one vertebra.
2. TB spondylitis, which is an infectious disease of the spine caused by the tuberculosis mycobacterium bacteria. These bacteria can form gibus or cold abscess, which is characterized by painless lumps.
3. Kyphosis, namely changes in the shape of the spine to be like the letter C due to the habit of bending the body.
4. Hernia pulposus (HNP) or pinched nerves, namely the release of spinal discs that clamp the spinal cord.
5. Spinal tumors.
6. And others.
Because many things can happen, then you should consult with an orthopedic specialist. The doctor will conduct a medical interview and physical examination of the spine and other related body parts. Furthermore, it will require you to carry out the necessary investigations, such as routine blood tests, spinal X-rays and spinal MRI. Later treatment will be given based on the cause of the disease experienced.
Meanwhile, you can take over-the-counter painkillers such as paracetamol. Then rest, avoid lifting heavy loads. You should only do light work until your doctor allows you to do other work.
Thus hopefully useful.
