What could raised bumps in spine be?

My son is 5 and he has developed a raised bump on his spine. It is mid was down. This spot is also discolored and the skin feels different. The color is almost a greenish color. He has had it for about 4 months now so I am sure it is not a bruise. Any ideas what it may be?

Hello,

Most probably it will be a bruise or skin rash. It will be better if you attach a picture in the follow-up query. Consult a dermatologist and get evaluated. Rarely congenital problems like spina bifida May manifest like this.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
