Is lipoma removal painful?
In general, I don't think that lipoma removal is painful. You do not need to have this removed unless it is bothering you.

Lipoma Excision Painful?
Thank you for the question.
Generally, excision of a lipoma is not a painful experience; depending on its location, size, and patient personality… It can often be done under local anesthesia.

Lump in the back
You should not assume the lumps are lipomas. There are many different kinds of lumps that can occur and some can be cancerous as well.
You should let a physician examine you and make the determination if these lumps are lipomas.
Once it is established that the lumps are lipomas then you have to figure out if indeed your back pain is related to them. Typically lipomas do not cause any significant pain.
If a lipoma is removed, it typically does not hurt much at all.
