Is this a boil?.

Hi there.

I don't really know what's what? But i do know i get lots of huge spots sometimes on my shoulder and back haven't had much of them for a while but have 1 or two, its the spots which are sore and massive (I call them boils, not sure what the real name for them is though), I do a lot of heavy lifting during work and noticed that my left shoulder was very weak, i have a lump under the skin about the size of a mini egg, maybe even bigger (Of course i do have an appointment on Wednesday but just thought id post to see if any of you recognise this, I have never had one like this before so it might not even be a spot at all, no signs of redness from it. I do tend to have a phobia of un-familar lumps but i usually get them all over th eplace. Im just wondering if there is such a boil that can be so huge and not have any bit of redness on it? . Anyone else ever experienced this sort of lump?.
