I have a lump near my right shoulder blade. It causes me pain an discomfort almost all the time. Should I have this checked out?

Sure, check it out.: In a young person such as yourself, it's most likely nothing serious, like a lipoma (benign fatty mass). But you don't need to be bothered by it. Have it checked out and removed. Good luck! ...Read more

COPD and complic.: With your history of Alpha 1 antitrypsin deficiency I would be concerned about any swelling or lumps, could indicate a lymph node reacting to a deeper right lung infection or something on the lung lining. I would seek medical attention to make sure an underlying pneumonia is not present. ...Read more

My 13 yr old daughter has a very hard noticeable lump on her right shoulder blade. What could it be?

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

What could it be? I have pain on the back of my neck. The back of my neck hurts quite a bit. I don't feel any lumps or anything. It hurts specially on the right side, pain goes on to my right shoulder too. I'm taking Advil for the pain, it helps for a fe

Right: Right sided neck pain is probably coming from your facet joints or muscles in your neck. I would recommend rest, hot shower and gently stretching your neck and continue taking advil (ibuprofen) as directed by your primary care doctor for couple days. Stop advil (ibuprofen) if you develop any sided effects such as stomach pain, bleeding, kidney problems or allergic reactions, but not limited to these problems. If the pain does not improve over the next couple days you should see your primary care doctor. Physical therapy is the usually the initial treatment for neck pain. Good luck! ...Read more

Quarter sized hard lump under skin right shoulder blade area with a small bruise above it has been there for sure 2 1/2 years what is?

Quarter sized hard lump under skin right shoulder blade area with a small bruise above it has been there for sure 2 1/2 years what is?

Many possibilities: If there is no pain, no increase in size, unlikely to be cancerous. If increasing in size, or painful, you need to see a general or ortho surgeon for eval and likely work up or excisional biopsy. Small non painful lumps are frequently inclusion cysts, fatty tumors, possibly a cyst coming from a local joint. For reassurance, have your pcp take a look first. ...Read more

Painless, unmovable, hard lump under my right shoulder blade. I was feeling some pain yesterday on my right side coming from my back to the breast.??

Varies: There are a number of possibilities and I would not hesitate to be seen for it. There is a condition in which a bone outgrowth from either the scapula or rib can cause what you are describing, but there are other causes as well. An exam and appropriate studies can determine the cause. ...Read more

I have a big size lump under my right shoulder blade. At first it wasn't giving me any problems, now it is hard for me to lay on my back or on my right side because it hurts. I can barely raise my arm for a long period without it hurting.

I have a big size lump under my right shoulder blade. At first it wasn't giving me any problems, now it is hard for me to lay on my back or on my right side because it hurts. I can barely raise my arm for a long period without it hurting.

Go see ur FamilyDoc: Not much I can do online except to tell you to go see your Family Doc to get a diagnosis & appropriate treatment. Perhaps it's a sebaceous cyst that can be drained. Or maybe a lipoma that needs to be removed. I hope it's not a pus pocket. Regardless, given that it's affecting you, that means it's time for you to see in-person care. Good luck! ...Read more

Hard to say: Would need more info and exam. If it has been fairly recent swollen nodes can cause similar symptoms and are often associated with a viral or bacterial infection. A good medical checkup would probably be a good place to start. ...Read more

Hi doc, after sleeping one night mostly on my right side. I woke up with a painful right shoulder and I noticed a bump on my lower right neck.

StraIn: Most likely strain, perhaps neck & rotator cuff. Apply warm compress to neck, & be sure to keep elbow down when you sleep at night. Acetaminophen or NSAID (like naproxen, ibuprofen) for pain relief. Try that for 3 days & see if it helps. If not, then seek clinical advice. Hope that helps. ...Read more
