Are there lymph nodes behind shoulder blade?

Nearby

Extremity-joint-shoulder
Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph Nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well

Are there lymph nodes in shoulders? Trapezius muscle?

Muscle

Muscle
Not in the trapezius muscle. Inferior to the scapula, yes. There are many other sites - arm , arm pit , legs , etc. Is this a self diagnosis ? See your family doc for assistance.

Dr. Tariq Niazi answered:

Is it possible for you to have a swollen lymph node on your shoulder blade?

Possible but not --

Extremity-joint-shoulder
seen very commonly. There must be another reason for the swelling on the scapula. Between the scapula & ribs, one could get a Bursal sac, resulting in a bursitis. Bony tumor can cause a swelling on the bone as well. Get yourself seen by the PCP or an orthopod.

5 yr old has a raised lymph node on upper shoulder just under the back of his neck. Has a bug bite about 1 inch under node .had a cold last week. Could bite = pea size node.no fever just itchy bite?

Probably.

Itching
Kids have very reactive immune systems, and it's not uncommon for them to develop enlarged lymph nodes after minor insults. If it doesn't resolve in a few days, a fever develops or the child appears ill, see a physician.

Dr. Vivek Agrawal answered:

Swollen lymph node and pain in shoulder?

Acute Illness?

Extremity-joint-shoulder
The swollen lymph node especially if relatively acute indicates your body is trying to fight off some type of infection...viral, bacterial, etc. The shoulder pain if in the same area as the lymph node is likely referred pain or involved in the process. See your doctor to establish a diagnosis.

This lump i Thought was a lymph node by ear.neck shoulder misaligned and the muscles under the lump are hard. Whole side of body hurts. What is it?

See a doctor

Ear
If you have a "lump" present long enough to practically have named it, and it is feeling hard to you and you feel that it's misaligning normal structures, I'd be concerned that it could be cancerous. It needs to be examined by a physIcian as soon as possible.
