Hi Sandy,

Welcome to HCM.
The lump on the back may be a lipoma, which is not dangerous.
However consulting a surgeon will be a better idea, to get the swelling examined and if indicated certain tests may have to be done.
Meanwhile don't worry and reassure your mother that it may be a simple swelling, but requires medical attention.
Wishing you and your mom, all the best.
