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?
Some thoughts...: 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. ...Read more
Have a small pea-sized lump on my back between L. shoulder blade & spine. Hard. No discharge or pain. No color. Has remained same size for about 2 yrs.
Cyst or not: Most commonly this would be a "lipoma", which is a lump of abnormal fat, or a sebaceous cyst, which is kind of chronic inflammation from old trauma. An abscess could also be a cause. If not enlarging and not painful, red or draining, safe to watch. Treatment is surgery to remove it, which is low risk, minor, and outpatient procedure. ...Read more

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

Skin infection: What you describe is either a infected skin cyst or hair follicle. These are painful. Hot compresses applied to the area may soften the skin and bring the infection to the surface, allowing drainage to occur with relief of pain. If this does not work, then seek a doctor to assess the area and provide treatment. ...Read more

Large hard lump in middle of my back, directly in the center, between shoulder blades. No pain where lump is, muscle to the left, neck and shoulder ar?
See a doctor: How long have you had it? You should have it looked at by a doctor, but the most common thing there is lipoma, which we leave alone if it doesn‘t bother you. However, we never truly know what it is unless we remove it and do a biopsy. If someone tells me it has been present for years, I just leave it alone. ...Read more

My 13 yr old daughter has a very hard noticeable lump on her right shoulder blade. What could it be?
Bone repair: My first thought would be that the kid had a localized trauma to that site and scuffed the bone. It would tend to lay down a bony deposit at the site that would feel prominent. Over a few years it would likely disappear. I would point it out at her next scheduled visit so her doc could confirm/exclude the idea. ...Read more

Have this checked: It is my advice that you have this lump checked out. It may very well be benign. However cancer can develop on scar tissue and this can generally be cured if treated properly. I suggest having a biopsy taken of the tissue for a pathological exam. Please make an appointment at a clinic to begin to follow this up. ...Read more
