Painless lump under the skin on the back above the waist. Should I be worried?

I can feel a little bump under the surface in my lower back about two inches from in my left side and and inch above my waist band when I sit and lean to one side. (i.e. Lean to left to feel left one and vice-versa). Found it by accident when rubbing my back while on the pc. It feels like a ball, but then it could be a bit of a bone or something else I suppose. It s not sore, just noticed

Welcome to HCM
What you feel as bump are usually benign fat tissue called Lipoma or Fibro lipoma, these are sometimes multiple.
You should see a surgeon and confirm it,and watch for any increase in size or it becomes painful,or some times restriction of movement.
They can be removed by a surgeon easily,mostly for cosmatic purpose.
