I have a lump on my back, near the left shoulder blade. A physician saw it and remarked it was harmless, and is barely noticable, "don't worry about it." But about a year later, a fluid-filled cyst has gradually developed entirely over the lipoma. It is extremely tender and I am extremely worried that it might spill open at any moment. My inner sense tells me to just ****k it with a new syringe needle, and let the fluid out. But then, will there be any complication resulting from it? I have read that in 'burn cases' the fluid-filled cysts that develop should never be pricked open since the fluid contained therein is helpful for the burnt part itself (it is a nice mechanism of the body to protect and heal itself). what should I do?
