Swollen bulging area on the back along the spine. Has a herniated disc from an injury. Are these related?

Hi, My son has a swollen or bulging area in the middle of his back that lays along the spine 3-4 inches long and 1.5 inches wide. It is not red or sensitive to the touch. He also has a herniated disk that is lower in his back from an injury. What is the swollen (raised area) in the middle of his back? He says its uncomfortable there and we noticed it when he laid on his stomach .
