Lump on back of neck. Why does puss leak out? Why does it pain?

I have a lump on the back of my neck , it started out small, but now its about the size of a ping pong ball in roundness, not thickness, and at random times puss will leak out... sometimes a little bit of blood will come with it to but usually only when I squeeze it to. but it hurts so bad, I want it to go away! help please!

Thanks for your query at HCM.
You seem to suffer from Sebaceous cyst at the neck. This has to be completely removed or excised. Please consult a surgeon or a dermato surgeon. they will help you out.
Good day
