My Shoulder Lump Symptoms
2 movable lumps on left collarbone near shoulder. Dr said it's fine but didn't say what they were. Lipomas? Lymph nodes? No other symptoms.
Lymph nodes, lipomas: A lipoma is in the skin, and looks like a bulge in the skin itself. An enlarged lymph node is usually under the skin and its possible to move the surface of the skin separate from the underlying lymph node. Benign lymph nodes can be either softer or a bit more firm than a lipoma, If a lymph node is very hard or unyielding, or tethered under the skin, be sure to get it checked out. ...Read more

Tis the season: To have the colds! You are not alone. Just make sure you are not coming down with the flu. Swollen lymph gland is a normal reaction of the body to fight infection. It should resolve in time. Not to worry unless it gets bigger, tender and hot to touch then it needs to be treated. Continue your current medications as prescribed. Feel better soon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

May be AC joint pain: The ac joint is where your clavicle meets your acromion (see diagram) and may become arthritic and cause a painful lump on the top of your shoulder. Doing a quick google search to see if this fits with what you are seeing and feeling is reasonable. If this does not fit or you think you need treatment then you should see someone for an evaluation in person. ...Read more
1 look=1000 words: How big is the lump? Is it painful? Discolored? More information or maybe a picture would be helpful to further give an impression of what this means. It could be many different things, and many of these are not serious medical problems. Getting a doctor to look at it will help to tell what it is, but sometimes you don't know for sure until it is removed. But not all lumps need to be removed. ...Read more
Lump: This tenderness on squeezing is nonspecific. A physician would have to examine the lump in order to make a diagnosis. Any mass can be tender on squeezing and that includes benign lipoma or other growths, cysts or abscess like a boil. Have the lump examined by your physician or surgeon. ...Read more
Can't Say: If this is a painless lump that is not growing and you noticed it incidentally than likely ok to watch. If painful or growing or any other signs of activity, better have it evaluated. From your question, it isn't clear if your lump is a new growth or a bump from a bony protuberence. ...Read more
Depends: This could arise from multiple causes. If located over the ac joint you may have a cyst or ganglion off the joint. You could also have a lipoma or less frequent and worst case scenario a soft tissue tumor like a sarcoma. If it is growing or concerning I would recommend a formal evaluation by your pcp or an orthopedic specialist. ...Read more
I have a lump on the top of my shoulder that is roughly around two inches around. It is soft and painless. What could this be?
Depends: Depending on the location, this could be a lipoma or fatty tumor or could represent a ganglion off the ac joint which is more anteriorly based towards end of collarbone. If the mass is enlarging it may be important to have this checked out as soft tissue sarcomas and more aggressive things can be painless at first so would follow this appropriately. ...Read more
Should I be concerned about a smooth painless lump on the back of my shoulder. I noticed it about a 1yr ago but it has grown twice the size.
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
Simple vs serious: Our bodies always have things that grow and change. Skin, fat, muscle, lymph nodes, bones, can change shape, get larger, more prominent due to many factors. The vast majority are not cancer but simply unusual growths like fatty tumors, cysts, skin tags, moles, etc. Most cause no symptoms and can be watched. If they cause symptoms or change colors, bleed, bruise or hurt, then see your doctor. ...Read more
