Varies: A number of possible causes, among the more common would be a rotator cuff injury. Other possibilities as well. I would not hesitate to be seen for s specific diagnosis and treatment options.

See PCP : 'lumps' on shoulder blades could be several things but what u should do is see your physician. Fatty benign tumors( lipomas) are common here.If u fell, an organizing hematoma may be forming. Osteochondromas are not uncommon on the scapula. All this is speculation; see your pcp w/ possible referral to orthopedist. Best of luck!

My left shoulder blade is swollen and it hurts when I shrug. Can carrying heavy objects on my shoulder be the cause of this? 20yrM carpet installer.

Shoulder blade pain: Go see a DO who does Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy (OMT). He/she might be able to fix you in one treatment!

Not sure : Could be a problem with the shoulder mechanism. May want to consider a visit to your primary care for an exam. May need an orthopedic referral as well. Hope this helps!
