My father has a back itch around his upper left

My father has a back itch around his upper left back closer to the center. It’s been there for 4 or 5 years, and we’ve never really been worried about it. He says his back feels itchy and keen or like needles pinching him in that area. His doctor is suspicious it could be serious, but he wasn’t being specific.

I have itching on my upper back on the left side. It has lasted for about two years now. I have gone to dermatologists and they don t see any thing in that area and do not have an answer for me. One of the doctors said it was from arm movement or lack of standing up straight. I have never heard of such a thing. It also starts to itch more when it is exposed to the air. Can you help me with this problem?

my father is 43 years old, he is experiencing back pains, more upper, and it feels like a something sharp stabbing him when he moves. When he raised his left arm, he felt excruciating pain. I thought of sciatica, but nothing is in pain with his thighs or leg areas. What do you think?
