Lump on back between shoulder blade, foul smell, black dot. What could this be?
Hi my husband has LOTS of problems but the one that concerns me is the lump on his back between his shoulder blade. It use to come and go so I put some pull sauve on it the smell is gross it come out a little at a time and then it stops there is a small black dot on top but. He had that for about 20 years if its not one place it comes out another place. Its like it follows a canal from the shoulder blade down the spine to the bottom. please let me know what you think this could be. Best regards DS
Thanks for query.
It seems that your husband is having Infected Sebaceous cyst giving rise to this problem.
Some time it may burst open and after some time it re-occurs.
Treatment is removal of cyst with sac.
Ok and bye.
