Thanks for posting your query.

Swelling on the right of spine with numbness and uneven hips is suggestive of a pathology related to spine and hip joint. It can be a chronic infection like tuberculosis, inflammation, congenital deformity, etc.

However, I would suggest that you consult your orthopaedician who can completely evaluate you and then determine the exact cause. It needs to be evaluated by X-ray and MRI of the spine and hip joint which you can do under the guidance of your orthopaedician.

I hope this answers your query effectively.
