Re: Enormous painful lump at the bottom of my spine.

I had one years back. It was a polynidal (sp?) cyst. My doctor did out patient surgery to remove it. The wound has to be left open to drain and heal from the inside out. The dressing has to be changed regularly. I was out of work for several weeks, but it was worth it. If I think it is coming back, I am sure to sit at angles that doesn't aggrevate it. It heals and goes away.

Good luck!
