Brain Tumors/Tumor


I have a tumor located on my spin I have had it for 6 years. I was told that it was just a fatty tumor. and that it was dorment till I rubed it. it was the size of a soft ball.I'm pretty small 110 pound 5'6". this dormented tumor. Grew to the size of a soft ball in less then a day. And causes back pain in my uper and lower part of my back where the tumor is located. 6 years ago I know there has been little info on the Internet in till reasently. The info I get now is making me think I wasn't diagnosed properly what is your opion

If you have had it for 6 years without any change until now it most probably is a fatty tumor (lipoma). That it has changed now does not change that evaluation. Since it has grown very rapidly and is now causing you pain there is probably a local infection/inflammation there. That may need treatment. Go to your doctor for that soonest! Good luck! I do not think it is dangerous but wait when it causes you problems?
