Benign need Photo: Hi YRuiz, Neck and shoulder pain are probably not related to your new finding in the trap muscle. It might be helpful to have someone take a picture of the lump. Furnucle, lipoma are two benign conditions that might be there. Over the counter med like naprosyn or ibuprofen with food may help the overall neck and shoulder pain.

Time to see your Dr: I'm trying to follow what you are saying, but one thing is clear. Something is not right. Many of the symptoms you describe may occur from hormonal or vitamin issues, but they also could be signs of a more serious problem. Ask to be scheduled for a comprehensive physical and some lab work. Good luck.

I feel there's a lump in the right side of my throat no pain while swallowing. Lump sensation hurts when I take a deep breath and right shoulder pain?

Hard to say: Would need more info and exam. If it has been fairly recent swollen nodes can cause similar symptoms and are often associated with a viral or bacterial infection. A good medical checkup would probably be a good place to start.

See below: Neck pain commonly refers to the shoulder. Initially resting the neck/shoulder, using moist heat, and taking a short course of anti-inflammatory can help. Once the pain is better you will want to gradually increase your range of motion.

Try simple things: I would try tylenol (acetaminophen) and anti-inflammatory medications (eg ibuprofen, aleve, etc) as well as modalities (e.g. Ice and heat). I would try heat first.
