Lump on back in line with spine after doing backward flips. Suggestions?

Hi. My 11yr old son recently was messing about and doing backward flips, and when he stood up a lump had come up on his back, directly in line with his spine . It goes down over weeks, and then tonight he was playing on the carpet, on his back, stood up and once again this lump has flared up? Should we be concerned. The doc said to see how it goes, but now we are worried ?
