Bump Behind Shoulder
I think I popped my shoulder whilst biking. I was just a tiny little bump. 3 months on i'm still feeling pain should it really take this long to heal?
3 months seems long: A shoulder injury from biking should be evaluated by a sports medicine doctor or an orthopedic doctor if the injury does not heal up quickly. Perhaps a ligament (holding 2 bones together) was damaged. Sometimes there is impingement, where a ligament or bone is pressing on another ligament or muscle. After initial treatment, physical therapy for a few weeks should help regain normal mobility. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My girlfriend has a large bump on her upper-shoulder, neck area. It started small but gradually got larger as time progressed. It hurts to the touch.

If it is tender it may be a normal reactive lymph node or a sebaceous cyst. If it does not resolve she should see a doctor for evaluation. If it is a cystic structure her doctor can help you decide how to treat it. If it is an enlarged lymph node they may suggest an ultrasound. ...Read more
Is there any kind of device or support that i can wear to help with vibrations and bumps like in the car for the shoulder to keep it more stable?
Probably not...: It all depends on what the cause of the shoulder pain and instability is. If you have an unstable shoulder there is something called a sully brace that can be worn, but other than that, any other brace that would hold your arm still you could not wear while you were driving (if you were the driver). There are also some neoprene wraps that can be put on the shoulder to help, but not for stability. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Keratosis pilaris: The slightly rough small papules on shoulers or upper legs typically are hair follicles which are dry. This time of the year sun exposure or drying from hot showers may flare this.
