Small lump on back

Patient : I have had this small soft lump on my back (brown in colour) for as long as I can remember, it is located just below my right trap. There is no pain in it at all and it is stretchy it is shaped almost like the top of a mushroom or fire ball. I want to know if anyone knows what this might be and if it would be fine to just try putting a needle through it or cutting it off with some scissors to remove it?
