Hello Rizaa, Thank you for the question.
Has your father ever seen a doctor to determine the cause? Lumps that appear on the shoulder can be caused by:
sebaceous cysts, which are sacs filled with soft or liquid fluid formed from sweat glands
skin abscess, a bacterial infection that causes pus and accumulation of dead tissue in the skin
Epirdemoid cysts, like sebaceous cysts, are formed from other skin tissue
lipoma, which is the growth of abnormal fat tissue that is benign
Please advise your father to see a doctor directly to ascertain the cause. The doctor will ask about this complaint then examine the lump in question. The doctor will determine further treatment after ascertaining the cause. In the meantime, avoid pressing this lump further. Clean the pus that comes out with a clean cloth. If you have a fever, your father can take paracetamol to relieve fever.
I hope this helps.
