Hi-

 I go to a surgeon on Wednesday to take a look at a lump on my back and to recommend either a CT-scan or MRI.  I have had this lump on the right side of my back, just under my shoulder blade since July.  It seems it has grown in size and is oval in shape.  If one presses on the top of the lump, the pain is excruciating.  Did you experience any of these symptoms before being diagnosed?
