Skin Cyst Infection: Step one needs antibiotics. They never work well enough alone. Step two- adequate drainage. Step three is removal if it reoccurs. If the cyst re-accumulates it will get infected again, so it must be excised if that should happen. ...Read more

See a doctor: That's a pretty good sized lump on your back. I would recommend getting it seen by a doctor - impossible to really say what it is, but it DOES need to be seen to make sure it is not anything serious. Sometimes cysts or lipomas can appear on the back, but can only make that call after a proper exam. ...Read more

Firm lump on shoulder blade that does not move. Been there for about two yrs, recently growing and increased discomfort. Fairly certain not a lipoma.

Firm lump on shoulder blade that does not move. Been there for about two yrs, recently growing and increased discomfort. Fairly certain not a lipoma.

Get evaluated: Any lump increasing in size or associated with discomfort warrants evaluation, particularly if present for fairly lengthy duration. I would not venture to guess what it may or may not be without an exam. ...Read more

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

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

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! ...Read more

Be examined: It is difficult to know what to diagnose without an exam. An ultrasound may be helpful. Have your doctor or urgent care center assess you for further management. ...Read more
