the bump is fixed and the pain centered where the bump is
its not fixed to any bones, pelvis or spine, if you run your hand over it you feel a bump which is deep in the skin
so will this lipoma be visible during the ultrasound? also why is the local GP not mentioning this? because he keeps on going on about a muscular pain.
I'm based in the UK, you mention a general surgeon, is there a specific specialist that deals with this type of things? I don't think that we have general surgeons, or maybe we do and I don't know.
Hello, not sure if this is going to be classed as second question here or not, but i just wanted to add further information and possibly get more advise. as mentioned in the main body of the question, an indepth ultrasound was done not only on the back but also to front. So the whole of the lower abdomen and lower back. the Radiographer said that all looks normal, but the pain on the lower left side persists. we are really baffled here. The lump was classed as scar tissue and not playing a part on the lower back pain. the GP continues to say that its muscle related. i just can't put into words the frustration, i mean pleased that the xrays are not showing anything, please that the indepth ultrasound also shows nothing, the usine tests are clean, no blood or darken colours no pain when passing water or difficulties, the stool is ok too no blood or any pale or dark colours. the blood tests have shown that the ALT & AST levels are slightly raised but that could be because at the moment she's taking pain killers and paracetamols every 4 hrs. This left lower back pain continues to affict my mother. what is the next step? an MRI? its incredible that the DR looks baffled but he's not exactly making or suggesting any actions, i'm almost putting words in his mouth.
Well please bear in mind that i'm not a radiographer here, but i asked the following question:any abnormalities - response was "no"
is there anything that its out of the ordinary response was again "no"
he checked all the organs and again nothing was abnormal
as far as he was concerned the scan showed nothing abosolutly nothing. all was deamed as "normal"
hope this helps, but again please bear in mind that i'm not a radiographer here.
i didn't see the report, he just pointed to and said that the lump is scar tissue and not connected to the back pain
ok, but can i ask i mean, with the checks done thus far, can we eliminate life threatning illnesses? surely if there was something that we should be concern about it would of come out in the xrays, ultrasound, blood tests and urine tests
