Swelling on lower back on tip of back bone, no pain, discomfort on sitting, have started yoga. Is it serious?

Hello Doctor, I am 25 years old girl, unmarried and from a week or so, I have started noticing swelling in my lower back, or you can say the tip of the back bone. It doesn t pain or hurt. I just feel some discomfort when I sit. It feels as if something heavy is holding my back. No other problem. I just started doing yoga 15 days before, but I did not do the exercises which are difficult. I followed my body and worked out as per my capacity. It is something serious?

Hello Writerplanet,
The swelling you are noticing at your lower back can be a lipoma , which is a benign swelling composed of fatty tissue. It is usually painless, movable and soft to touch.
Usually lipoma doesnot require any treatment. Surgery is required only if it gets painful or there is restriction of movement. But consult a surgeon for furthur evaluation.
