Did your doctor say the word Lipoma whenever he made the diagnosis?

Where is your tumor located?

Reply to James's Post: No, he did not mention Lipoma. It is located on my back near the shoulder blade in the bra area.

This is likely an abcess that was created from the infection. Your doctor may have to go in and debrid any infected or dead tissue to promote healing. I have never heard of the word "cheese tumor" before and I have delt with many of these types of infections.
