I dont have an answer for you back problem as such, but I have seen somthing like that befor, from a bloke who lives in my road, it look exactly like what you got, but I have never asked him what it is, but I do know that hes dosnt have cushings syndrome. Obviously this dont help you bout hopfully put ur mind a bit at rest. Also do you feel like you cushing sydrom i.e, insomnia, easy weight gain, low test ect.

Have you been to the doc yet about it?

I have the same hump that you have, in the exact spot. I noticed it in 2000. It was evaluated in 2001 and the doctor told me it was a fatty mass, benign situation. I don't mean to scare you but the doc asked me if I have HIV, because he sees this in some asymptomatic HIV patients. So I had to take an HIV test to rule out AIDS and it was negative. So the doc concluded that it was a fatty mass benign situation for me. It has not changed in size since. It does not bother me at all. You should have it evaluated.
