I have had back pain for several years and am only 23 years old. There are 4-5 moveable "nodules" on both my left and right sacroiliac regions, and my PCP thinks that they are "back mice." Who should I see to have them removed? Also, is it safe to have them surgically removed?

Unaware of back mice?
Never heard of this. I would recommend a new pcp to begin with. Can't make a treatment plan without an accurate diagnosis. After the diagnosis, go from there.
I have never heard of this term. It sounds as if they may be lipomas or neurofibromas. You may need radiographic evaluation and a biopsy prior to definitive treatment. I would recommend a plastic surgeon or general surgeon first.
