In my opinion This could be a bursa (inflamed synovial sac) or thickened posterior longitudinal ligament.
Hot packs,ultra sound and anti inflammatory gels can help.

In my opinion you are describing a spinous process fracture
I recommend an x ray to confirm the decide to do either surgical removal or fixation

Good Luck

hi
this may well be related with the trauma you suffered 4 years ago. A bony chip may have avulsed out of spinous process or the coccyx.
a xray would confirm the diagnosis.
thanks
