Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Some orthopedists should evaluate you by physical examination .If it is a lump,origin and seat of lump should be ascertained,and if inflammation of mass in subcutaneous tissue(lipoma likely as it is moving and unfixed) is there,anti-inflammatory and pain relievers should be prescribed,if deepertissues or spine involved then myelogram/MRI ?CT-scan should be done-meningocoel is often a mobile or non fixed lumplump
