Patient : I have swelling or a lump lump in my lower left side,back... close to my kidney, I think. It feels firm, and under the skin, seems to be affixed tothe lower ribs. It is only slightly sensitive to the toucht, mainly after i've been feeling it for a bit. This has hapened periodicall over the past few years, where it will swell like this for a few weeks and then go away for a significant time. I experience no other symptoms during this time.
