Patient :I had a small knot in my back last week. over the course of the next day it grew significantly worse. it causes a lot of pain when trying to stand, leading to terrible contractions of abs and some back pain, which don't really reside. I believe the source of the original knot/pain to be in my external oblique muscle I'm a 20 year old male. What could it be?
