Painful bumps on the back. Should I be worried?

I have a couple of bumps that are red on my middle back that popped out of nowhere 2 days ago and they really are starting to bother me, especially when they are touched and sometimes when not, there are mini sharp pains and then my whole left side aches. The texture is odd too. I am working and don t want to have to ask for time off if it is nothing but am a little worried.

Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

From the description you gave, it is hard to identify the problem. You started something about color and stopped short.
The bump could be a boil, abscess, internal or external cyst, keloid etc.
As you said there is pain, this might be internal or external abscesws or boil.
You should consult a physician or surgeon so as to diagnose it properly and get treatment.
Get well soon.
