Patient :Hi i have a boil that is located on my back shoulder blade. I have had it for years but has been small and white. Recently it has grown and become inflamed with a red ring around it. Im getting abit scared. It isnt extremely painful only when its touched. I am not sure if it is a boil as this has been on back for years very small non painful. I have started hormone tablets dhea and elevit for ivf not sure if this has something to do with it.
Symptoms: Big red lump with localized pain when touched
Hello, thanks for your health query on ATD.
As appears from your history, the lump on your back may be an old lipoma(deposition of fat in a sac). Now because of continuous friction it has become inflamed & painful.
My advice is to get it removed ASAP, lest there are chances of recurrence.
Hope this helps you.
