Hi!
Where is that bump located exactly? What's the size of it? Does it have different color than normal skin color?

It is so itchy, and the colour is a bruised looked.
It is solid the doctor here says it is a fat tissue.

Is this lump soft, rubbery or doughy consistency on touch? Does it move easily under the skin with the fingers? Does it depress when you touch it on? Do you feel itchy only on the lump or on the larger area of your back?

I have a small bump on the upper part of my back maybe a few mm wide. It itches when I touch it, it has no color difference and it seems to be a part of my skin I can actually pick it up/ move it... no idea but have had it for a few weeks.. Any ideas?

Re: Very Itchy Lump On Back
Hi,
For Lumps biopsy is the only solution. Better to go for that as soon as possible.

Hi,
To find what it is you should go for biopsy for avoiding future risks.

Sudden Lump on back
I suddenly developed a lump on my back on Friday. At first I thought I had pinched a muscle because it was painful when I moved. Then when I was getting undressed, I felt it and was shocked to find a lump about 1" long by 1/2" wide. It is extremely itchy and looks fairly red or bruised. It is right under my bra strap that goes around my back which is not helping the situation. Any ideas?
