Large bump on back, thick pus discharge on squeezing it, grown in size. Cure?

My husband has had a bump on his back for the longest and he ask me to squeeze it...and really really really thick stuff came out as I squeezed it. That began over two years ago. About two mouths ago I did our normal routine of squeezing it and now it it so much bigger and very sore? Could you please help. Thank you in advance!

Thanks for writing in

What part of the back is it situated ?
Considering the fact that the discharge is thick the chances of sebaceous cyst are more

It keeps on reoccuring as the capsule is left behind

Now that it has grown in size means it would have got infected and that is the reason it is painful

THe best remedy is to get it removed surgically
Hope this helps
