Shoulder rotator cuff injury 9 months ago. Tendonitis. Lump at tip of R shoulder blade size of quail egg. What is that?
Possibly: The rotator cuff is located beneath both the acromion and the clavicle. The body has a tough time deciding where the pain is because of the low density of nerve fibers and organs in the area. Therefore rotator cuff pain can be across the back, in the clavicle or down the arm. You should get it checked out. ...Read more

Begin gentle ROM: With a nondisplaced radial head fracture, I treat only with an ace and sling.

Small lump forearm near elbow, not on elbow. Hit area hard a few weeks ago. No pain. Cancer possible?
Unlikely: Fat necrosis is one of the common causes of a nodule in the skin after trauma. Cancer usually does not develop within weeks, so that seems unlikely. Was it possible there was lump there before, and you only notice it now after the injury? Without an age, there are some other possibilities that could be seen: gout, arthritis, etc. ...Read more

Varies: There are a number of possibilities; from an enlarged lymph node, to a growth of a tumor or an infectious process among other possibilities.

No: The two have minimal affect upon the other. There are cases where a surgery for the rotator cuff tear (arthroscopy with rotator cuff repair) causes enough swelling in the hand. The swelling can cause "triggering", or stiffness in the index finger. Just a torn rotator cuff can on rare occasions cause the same problem. Other surgeries to the shoulder, elbow, or wrist can do the same. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Found a firm mobile pea-sized lump under skin near elbow on left forearm. Now found one near elbow on upper arm, and one 1/2 way up back right bicep.

But because you are giving me limited information ( I do not know the consistency or shape or color), it is best that you follow up with a physician so they can do the necessary tests and visual assessment. ...Read more
