Lump on upper back near neck, have intense upper back pains. Are they related?

HI I have a weird lump on my upper back, close to my neck on my right side. I have had an ultra sound and have a surgery booked to remove it, but not for another month. I have been having really bad upper back pains and am not sure if the two are connected. The surgern said he cant tell what it is until he sees in when he cuts. The bump is not too big and hasnt grown, it sometimes hurts. I am really confused on what this is and if I should be worried or not

Hello and thanks for the query
Usually these lumps are benign and can not cause any problem. We have to worry if it starts increasing in size, aching or discharging. The best method to know what it is, is the biopsy of the lump after surgery as your doctor advised you. But needle aspiration test (FNAC) can give you an idea about that. It can be done by you doctor if you are scared from surgery. But if reports came back something abnormal than you have again go for the surgery. Your doctor advice you the best by clinical examination of the lump.
Best Wishes
