Movable bump on the back, foul smelling brown pus on popping, regularly fills with pus on squeezing. Remedy?

i have had a bump on my back that i could move around, like a ball in my skin for about 5 years. Just until this year someone popped it with a needle and lots of brown puss came out. The puss had a really bad odor, and now if i dont squeeze it regularly it fills back up with puss. its not painful at all, but it has a terrible odor.
