Lump on Back?

My husband has a hard lump in the middle of his back and it seems very close to his spine.  It doesn't hurt and is the size of a quarter, maybe a little bigger.  Does this sound like something serious, like maybe a tumor of the spine?

Lipomas often form in the fatty tissue under the skin. These are also the most noticeable ones as they look and feel like soft, dome-shaped lumps under the skin. They vary in size from pea size to several centimeters in diameter. The most common sites where lipomas develop are on the shoulders, the chest and the back, but other areas of the skin can develop a lipoma.
