Mole at the back with white discharge
In the last few months, a small mole-sized growth has developed on my back, which looks like an abnormally large pimple. While trying to prick it, a white, viscous but thick fluid oozed out. I try to remove all this fluid but it again builds up over time. Little worried that it may be serious. What should be the next steps?

Most likely the swelling can be epidermoid cyst. It's a painless benign swelling but can become infectious sometimes which can result in pain and redness.
Next Steps
Excision (removal)
Health Tips
Do not try to squeeze, chances of infection increases

It may be sebaceous cyst which will require removal either laser or surgical. Kindly consult for proper diagnosis and management.
