Pinched nerve: This is likely secondary to nerve compression either in the neck (cervical spine) or the shoulder area. Stay out of the gym until the symptoms clear and you have had the issue evaluated.

I have a lump on my left shoulder blade, what should I do?

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!

Lump on shoulder: Yes Go to ER or urgent care, sometimes urgent care can refer you to doc that have lower prices if no insurance or you can look up free /low cost clinics in your area. Could be infection, could be mass/tumor/ganglioma/schwannoma, shoulder lumps need to be evaluated you need xray perhaps CT..

Mri: I believe further investigation is needed. If for no other reason peace of mind. MRI is ideal to see if is a lipoma a fatty tumor or something else. The fact that it has changed is of note. Best visit your doctor and discuss what to do next

I have a lump above my left shoulder blade kinda oval shaped and its been there for about a year. It recently started hurting. Constant pain?

Lipoma?: You should see a surgeon for exam and probable excision. Lipomas are self-contained fatty growths that are usually left alone unless they become large enough to cause discomfort, which is what it sounds like you have. Surgeon can do exam and see if something else or remove.

Prob AC joint: The AC joint is on the top of your shoulder, about 2 inches from the outside edge. I suspect this is what is bothering you. It is easily irritated by repetitive movement and strain. It would take an exam to know exactly where your problem is. Back off on your lifting and try some ibuprofen. If it doesn't go away, see your doctor.

Lump: This will have to be examined by a physician for diagnosis. If it's movable and tender it could be an inflamed cyst. If it's bony hard and immovable it could be a bone tumor. If it's near the shoulder joint it could be a bone spur. Have it examined.

Pain in left shoulder blade for several years, accompanied by local (skin) partial numbness, small lump towards top right that can be moved and grinds?

Pain in left shoulder blade for several years, accompanied by local (skin) partial numbness, small lump towards top right that can be moved and grinds?

Numbness, lumps: These could be related, as a lump (nodule or mass) may cause pressure on a superficial nerve in that area. Grinding is common with some people's joints (crepitus) and if not painful is of little concern. If the lump and not the joint is making the grinding noise, perhaps it is time to get it checked out!

Unclear question: The doctor who examined you would be in a better position to tell you more than one of us on this forum who has not examined you. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Red patch - shoulder: Is it flat or raised? If there is lyme disease in UK check for it. May be eczema, bruise, infection (but should have grown wihtout treatment), early psoriasis, fungal (tinea), mycosis fungiodes. Try Consider (antifungal /steorid cream f/u w/doc
