Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

The only way to stop it from enlarging it is to stop doing things that involve lifting heavy things.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If you keep on lifting things it will most likely keep on worsening.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If its causing symptoms and bothering you, you should be referred to a surgeon to evaluate this further as you may require surgery to fix it.
