Neoplasms (Definition)

"tumor" literally translates as "mass", so even a fresh bruise could be called a "tumor". Doctors use the term "neoplasm" (tranlates literally as new growth) to describe tumors that are abnormal growths of cells. These may be benign or malignant; "malignant" = cancer.

Spinal = spinal tap?: If you mean spinal as spinal tap, consider this- a persistent CSF leak can cause a headache with standing that is relieved with lying down. This is a common but under recognized problem after a spinal tap. Tingling in one shoulder blade however is hard to explain. Why did you have a spinal tap? Perhaps an answer lies there. ...Read more

I have been experiencing an itchy and sore left shoulder. It's not super painful , but more annoying. Just curious what could be causing these symptom?

Sore Shoulder: A common cause of shoulder pain is soreness of the tendon (a cord that attaches a muscle to a bone) of the rotator cuff (the part of the shoulder that helps circular motion).

Could a nerve problem be causing such symptoms? Such as left shoulder pain when breathing deeply and lying down, left arm tingling at all times.

Could a nerve problem be causing such symptoms? Such as left shoulder pain when breathing deeply and lying down, left arm tingling at all times.

Yes: As tingling in arm is constant, and worsens with change of position, my best guess would be nerve compression within the shoulder. Breathing deeply is like the positional change, it puts further pressure of the nerve as the lungs fill with air and compress anatomy upwards into the nerve compression site. See an orthopedist. ...Read more

Hello..

I'll start with...: ...the most serious possibility: angina or heart pain. Some people can have a heart attack w/o ever having chest pain. Second on my list is a pinched nerve in the neck causing pain and numbness along its track from the spine to the hand. Muscle spasms can also cause this type of pain. I'm glad your b/p & pulse were normal but that doesn't mean all is okay. Please get medical attention. ...Read more

Some random left shoulder pain & occasional  tingling in left side of  jaw & some nausea. Exercise did not worsen symptoms. Heart related or anxiety?

Something else: Your symptoms don't sound like either cardiac (nor anxiety-related) symptoms especially given your age and you did not mention if you had any cardiac symptoms, your symptoms do appear to be referred from another source, perhaps stomach or esophagus. I suggest seeing your primary care physician who can evaluate your symptoms in more detail and examine you. ...Read more
