Lump in the spinal cord with mild pain. How can I get rid of it?

Hi, I just noticed I have a lump on my spinal cord. It is in the middle of my back and when i push it, it hurts a bit but not much. It is red and feels as if the spinal cord bone is just bigger there but because it is red and a tiny bit I think it may be something else. Can you please tell me what this could be and how I can fix it.

Thank you for posting your query.

The final diagnosis can be made after clinical examination of the affected area. However, if you can upload a photograph of the affected area, it would help.

The possibilities include a lipoma, sebaceous cyst, etc.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
