What causes sponge like ball right on my spine?

I have a small sponge like ball right on my lower spine, that can move slight when i touch it , there is no pain, but I've had various back problems and pain including scoliosis, and a blood patch due to a epidural gone wrong that caused spinal fluid to leak from my brain.

Hello!
Welcome to HealthcareMagic!

Your symptoms could be related to different possible causes: a lipoma, a cyst, inflammation, etc.. Coming to this point, I would recommend consulting with your doctor for a physical exam and an ultrasound of the soft tissues in this region. A spine MRI in this region would give more information on the nature of this lesion.

Hope you will find this information helpful!
Best wishes!
