Hello there,

I believe the swelling is originating from the spinal region. You have not mentioned which hyper mobility syndrome is your child suffering from although there is no correlation with a swelling or lump.

Please get the swelling shown by a Surgeon. It needs to be ascertained whether there was any trauma sustained by your child or it was a lump that went unnoticed.

Certain points about the swelling need to be known like tenderness, mobility, any bleed or discolouration.

So kindly get a Surgery consultation for your child.

Take care.
