What is this weird clogged pore? (Photo)

This bump has been on my back for over a year. One picture shows the bump. It doesn't feel good if touched. The other picture is immediately after my hubby pulled the lump out with tweezers. It grows back the same. Can someone help me figure out what this might be? I can't find any pictures on the net.

This is a normal cyst and can only be cured with surgical removal.  Seek a cosmetic dermatologist or plastic surgeon if it bothers you. I wish you the best of luck, Dr. Emer.
