Have a painful lump on the spine. Is this spondylosis?
i am in the marine corps and my provider has done multiple xrays of my lower back, every time he gets the results back he says it is a minor case of Spondylolysis . Which is to my knowledge the L-5 slightly overlapping my lower lumbar , But i don t believe that is my problem. I have a lump or bone sticking out of the right side of my spine which is causing all of the pain, would you happen to know what this is so i can confirm myself that it is not Spondylolysis
Hi, As x-ray result shows spondilitis, it is confirmatory. Due to overlapping of vertebrae you might be feeling bone sticking out. For more confirmation and clear your doubt go for CT scan and go for the report. Ok and take care.
