I noticed a bony lump on the top of my left shoulder bone. Not paining but it's grinding when rotate the shoulder. I lift weights. Cause for worry?

I noticed a bony lump on the top of my left shoulder bone. Not paining but it's grinding when rotate the shoulder. I lift weights. Cause for worry?

Prob AC joint: The AC joint is on the top of your shoulder, about 2 inches from the outside edge. I suspect this is what is bothering you. It is easily irritated by repetitive movement and strain. It would take an exam to know exactly where your problem is. Back off on your lifting and try some ibuprofen. If it doesn't go away, see your doctor. ...Read more

Besides breast cancer/lymphoma, what else causes a hard, immovable, non-tender lump under collarbone in area of infraclavicular node on left side? Thx

Besides breast cancer/lymphoma, what else causes a hard, immovable, non-tender lump under collarbone in area of infraclavicular node on left side? Thx

Many things: Infection, cyst, benign tumor, bruise/bleed; most lumps are not cancer, but masses that are cancer in general continue to grow with time. If you are over 40, I would recommend you should be having annual mammography, regardless of whether you have an infraclavicular mass. Pay attention to this mass, and you should try to see your physician regarding this. ...Read more

Hard, painless lump on left clavicle, approx 2 cm or so. Could it be cancer?

Hard, painless lump on left clavicle, approx 2 cm or so. Could it be cancer?

Not likely, but: A cancer of the clavicle bone would be highly unlikely. However, there are lymph nodes located just behind the mid point of the clavicle that might be enlarged and mistaken for the bone itself. Enlargement here would be significant. If this painless lump has been present for years without change likely insignificant. If it's just been noticed more recently, or getting larger, have it examined. ...Read more

Hard to say: Hard to say. The clavicle articulates with the sternum medially. Sometimes the sternoclvicular joint can beome quite enlarged, often from an injury or an arthritic condition.

How deep?: How deep in the lump? If it feels like it is more on the surface, you should see a dermatologist. If it feels deeper you should get a breast exam and a mammogram from your family practice doctor. If you need to discuss this in more detail or you want me to look at the lump, you can schedule a virtual visit with me. ...Read more

What could a painful, hard, non movable lump on 9 month old sons left clavicle area be?? When X-ray shows normal 2 times??

Lump: It is probably an enlarged lymph node and likely benign. It could be a cyst of some kind, but that's less likely. Why was it xrayed twice? See your pediatrician. The baby should be examined for other "lumps" particularly in both axillae, groin, and opposite neck area. I would check the baby's CBC to make sure the white count wasn't ominous. ...Read more

What are the chances of a large soft lump being lymphoma? It is located right above left clavicle and feels like it is attached to muscle or something

What are the chances of a large soft lump being lymphoma? It is located right above left clavicle and feels like it is attached to muscle or something

Some, but not high: A large soft lump in this location could be an enlarged lymph node, from infection or lymphoma or another cancer, or it could be something else that is relatively common, such as a lipoma. You should see your doctor about this, and he/she may refer you first for good imaging (ct or mri) and then for a biopsy, perhaps a fine needle biopsy as an outpatient.
Don't delay. ...Read more

5 rock hard lumps on both left and right clavicles and 1 above right clavicle and 1 under cheekbone with foamy urine. Is this cancer?

Unusual: Cancer is uncommon in your people. But you need to find out the nature of the rock hard lumps that you have noticed.

If they show any further growth you should go see your doctor and if they are real, further testing would likely be required to check the lumps. .....Like a biopsy? ...Read more

I have a lump on my left shoulder blade, what should I do?

I have a lump on my left shoulder blade, what should I do?

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! ...Read more
