squeeze bump on back weekly for months

Help. I have had this bump on my back for months that fills with white soapy looking stuff weekly. I have to pop it weekly and it fills right back. It is not red, just fills under the skin. What is it and how can I get rid of it?

Sounds like a sebaceous cyst, you need to see a doctor to have it drained and the sac removed or it will keep filling back up, make an appt with your doctor or visit an after hours care clinic.
These things can get infected, it happened to me. I had it removed and it never came back.
