I might not have been as nice as you were to the people who first told you that the lump on your back was just a cyst. No matter what it looked like, they should have made sure it was not cancer by doing a biopsy. And because they did not do this, and gave the lump time to grow some more, you have lost tissue and parts of your spine that you probably can't get back.
Welcome to the forum. It is a great place to be. Look forward to hearing more from you.
