Lump On Back Between Shoulder Blades
My husband has about more or less 1.5 inch lump in his back between the shoulder blades. Movable, painless didn't change in size. What could it be?

Have your husband's doctor look at this. One surgeon i know says, "the best place for a lump is in a specimen bottle." of course, that's not always the case - but have his doctor evaluate him to be sure. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
I have been having some pain above my right breast. It hurts when I take a deep breath. I thought it was due to straining a muscle in my back between my shoulder blades, but my back isn't hurting. I also feel a lump in my throat. I'm a 23yr female.?

If there is a break in the skin, an infection or some of the road can be in the lump (very doubtful if there was no break in the skin). Warm compresses help bruises to resolve ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
