What Causes Infected Lymphoma On The Upper Back ?

I have what appears to be an infected lipoma on my upper back inbetween my shoulder blades. In the last 2 days, it has doubled in size, gotten bright red, started hurting, and now is emitting an awful smell. How urgent is this that I get it taken care of? Where should I go?

Hello,

You should consult to your doctor immediately.This can turn into an abscess and can be disatrous.If it is large then your doctor may decide to drain it by surgery & if it is small then you may have recovery by medicines.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
