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?

Some thoughts...

Back
A movable, painless lump on the back might be a sabaceous cyst (not much trouble unless infected), or a benign fatty growth called a lipoma. But the fact is, it's a lump. 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.

Extremity-joint-shoulder
Shoulder problems, including wearing out the joints in your shoulder and back maybe the cause. Worth asking a health care professional. Good Luck.

Sharp pain in my left shoulder blade/back radiating to my left breast, left arm, neck. No breast lumps and breast does not hurt when its being touched?

Pain neck, back

Physical_therapy
The type of radiating pain you describe is often from nerve impingement (pinching) in the neck spinal area or in the thoracic area. See your doctor for diagnosis. Physical therapy helps. Avoid neck and back strain, heavy lifting most sports for now.

Hubby has two Painless lumps one on back other on shoulder.shoulder lump when pressed had foul smell pus in it.back lump is large in size.what it is?

Sebaceous cyst

Extremity-joint-shoulder
These are most commonly plugged glands which continue to secrete sebum (oil) which collects under the skin. They are usually harmless, but occasionally get infected or cause pressure symptoms and are usually recommended to be removed (often covered by insurance).

I have lumps in the breast and my breast, shoulder and back hurt. The pain seemed to come on suddenly. Is this cancer?

Probably not

Cancer
Breast cancer in a 20 year old would be exceedingly rare. You discuss your concerns with your friendly primary care physician.

Tender lumps in trap + tight neck. 3 year weights injury. Cervical MRI shows Ok. Shoulder blade uncomfortable when sitting, poss winging?

Hmmm lumps? masses

Tightness
are not normal from a weight lifting accident. This suggests adenopathy or swollen nodes or worse a real neck mass. You can't cure this yourself. See a doctor - see what they recommend. Winging of your scapula is unrelated - they can also examine you for this.

Neck lumps

Dr. Eleanor Host answered:

See profile/health info pic. Back of neck where shoulder & neck meet is more prominent & firm than other side. No lumps - could it b swollen lymph nod?

May be neck muscle

Shoulder
If it is really behind the neck, it isn't likely to be a gland. The glands are mainly on the front side of the neck. One of the larger back of the neck muscles may be larger than the other side, or may be swollen from being over used. This muscle is called the trapezius, if you want to look it up and confirm that is where the swelling is at.
