Thank you for your query.
It seems that you have a small lipoma.
It’s a benign growth of fat tissue located over your back.
Keep a close watch over it.
It if the mass suddenly increases in size, changes in color, bleeds then consult a physician.
It it remains the same size and is asymptomatic, then there is no reason to worry.
If you have any further queries, you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing you a speedy recovery. Have a nice day.
