Lipoma: A lipoma is a slow-growing, fatty lump that's most often situated between your skin and the underlying muscle layer. Often a lipoma is easy to identify because it moves readily with slight finger pressure. It's doughy to touch and usually not tender. You may have more than one lipoma. Lipomas can occur at any age, but they're most often detected during middle age. A lipoma isn't cancer. Read more

Lump: Hard to tell exactly what it is without seeing or feeling it, but if it is well circumscribed, mobile, chances are it is a sebacious cyst - a cyst originated from an oil gland whose oil could not evacuate and built inside to form a cyst. It's benign but above certain pressure it may pop open and get infected. Read more

I've found a soft lump on my back. It's approx 2 inches below and 2 inches across from my armpit. It's on my rib cage. It's also painless.
Lump: If the lump is on your back, I would think it is a cyst of some kind. If it is mobile (meaning you can move it side to side, up and down) and it's been there for a while unchanged, it sounds like a cyst, probably sebacious (oil gland clogged). I would see a doc to confirm it, though, and have peace of mind. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
