Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
It is not the growth of your tail bone which is making it painful. It is a kind of arthritis of the bone coccyx. You need to stop sitting on any hard surfaces and take pain killers along with anti inflammatory drugs to have relief. Sitz bath in warm water will also help.
