In brief: Sebaceous cysts

The shoulder lump is a sebaceous cyst.
The back lump is probably a lipoma. See a physician to be sure.

In brief: Sebaceous cyst

These are most commonly plugged glands which continue to secrete sebum (oil) which collects under the skin.
They are usually harmless, but occasionally get infected or cause pressure symptoms and are usually recommended to be removed (often covered by insurance).
