I have a friend that found a lump in the lower left side of his back. Although he has plenty of money to pay for a visit, he refuses to go to the doctor to get it checked out. I took a look at it and it is visible. What I'm trying to say is that you can tell that it is there without feeling around for it. It's not on his spine, it's slightly to the left of it. When I touched it, it didn't seem to move around too much. It feels pretty big though. I don't know if he was just trying to act tough but when I pressed on it he said it doesn't hurt. I am concerned and want to know what it might be. If it is possible that it is something serious or life-threatening I'm going to talk him into going to the doctor! Thank you.

Silicone inserts leave the epicondyle pressure-free and provide an intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema.
