Patient :My husband fell at least 10ft, on his lower back, right side, directly at the end of his ribs is a lump. It's not hard or mushy, just there! Any moment and he's in tears! He took 800mg ibuprofen, and rubbed icy hot on it! He's currently asleep but refuses to go to the ER! Is there any concern? Should he go to the ER?
