    Hi and welcome to the support group -

    It really depends on what the "lump" is called - I have one and it's called a Spinal Hemangioma at T-11 and this is referred to as a blood vessel tumor - mine only has to be reviewed by MRI or CT Scan every year to check growth rate, if any.

    If you can find out what exactly yours is being called then we can help you research that -
