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

Hi there, I have a small lump on the back of my right shoulder, no pain and no change since a few months. Could this be anything to worry about?

Depends on size: And how deep. It is most likely a sebaceous cyst or lipoma from your brief description, but can't tell you anything more. Show it to a doctor to make sure. ...Read more

I am having left upper side, right shoulder front has a lump or something on it and a cough and cold will not go away. Please help me?

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

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

I feel there's a lump in the right side of my throat no pain while swallowing. Lump sensation hurts when I take a deep breath and right shoulder pain?

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

I have a small bump on my right shoulder that I think is a blood blister, it doesn't hurt nor does it itch, what should I do about it?

Get it checked out: If this is bright red it is probably a benign lesion called a hemangioma but if dark and not improving it may be a skin cancer such as melanoma and it should be evaluated as soon as possible to be on the safe side. There are many other benign (good) possibilities but without more information I think it would be best if you contacted your doctor on monday, . ...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

Bump on right side below collar bone with pain and right shoulder hurts. What is this?

Bump on right side below collar bone with pain and right shoulder hurts. What is this?

Hard to say: There are a number of possibilities, and usually a detailed exam and appropriate tests can determine the diagnosis and treatment options can then be given. The coracoid process is a bone structure just below the collar bone and there are a number of structures that insert on it and may be inflamed or even torn. Consider being checked, thankyou. ...Read more

Very intense pulling burning pain down my right shoulder blade. Tender on touch. Also, there is pimple like bump which also hurts. What is it? Causes?

Shingles: You may be developing shingles. After you get chickenpox, the virus remains inactive (becomes dormant) in certain nerves in the body. Shingles occurs after the virus becomes active again in these nerves years later.
The reason the virus suddenly becomes active again is not clear. Often only one attack occurs.
Treatment is with valtrex (valacyclovir). ...Read more

How do I figure out why I have pain in right shoulder?

How do I figure out why I have pain in right shoulder?

Complex Joint: The shoulder is a complex joint, & many conditions/ injuries (rotator cuff injury, bursitits, tendonitis, labral pathology, etc) can cause pain. Some injuries of the soulder occur due to acute injury and some are from overuse. Shoulder pain can also come from your neck... I suggest you see an orthopedist for a complete exam.

I am experiencing squeaky noises from my right shoulder, I think it's because of the gym?

I am experiencing squeaky noises from my right shoulder, I think it's because of the gym?

Shoulder noises: Perhaps you're dealing with an overuse syndrome and are experiencing ligamental and/or shoulder joint noises. Either way, I recommend some time away from stressing the shoulder joint. Since you don't mention pain, there is no need for medications at this time. An orthopedic surgeon is best qualified to evaluate and advise you as needed. ...Read more
