Thank you for posting your query.
Your bulged disc is probably causing compression of nerves in the lower back, as a result, you have pain and tingling
in the legs. This would require an evaluation by a neurosurgeon, who would advise the best treatment approach- medical or surgical.
Initially, medical treatment is preferred, including pregabalin
. If this fails, surgery may be needed.
The mass also needs to be evaluated.
I hope my reply has helped you.
I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.
