Small Bump on my back

For the past year or so, or maybe even longer, I have lost count, there has been a small raise or a bump on my upper-right back, just a inch or so away from the spine. When I reach behind to touch it, I can feel it is some kind of ball shaped thing. It does not pain often, but once a blue moon it does. Any ideas?

Hi
This is a sebaceous cyst. This is a common skin condition where the oil gland has a cyst. This needs to be surgically removed to give a cure. However you need not get it removed unless it gets infected or painful repeatedly.
