Squishy Lump On Shoulder
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Seek medical advice: Any lump that grows beyond one centimeter in size needs a medical examination and a biopsy consideration. Leaving a growing mass unattended can be a disaster in the end. No more delays...Go get a check up and ask for a biopsy, if need be.
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.
Squishy moveable lump on lower neck where my neck meets my shoulder. Doesn't hurt, on left side. Size of pea maybe. Should I be concerned?
Yes, see a doctor: You should have this evaluated. It could be a lymph node or possible a mass. It may also be related to an infection.
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.
Find what is it: When find what is it you will be able to find what to do with it.
Tough to know: Your problem could be caused by a number of things. To really know what is happening and how best to treat your problem, you will need to see a health care provider in person. Good luck to you. :).
?: "lumps" on the dkin are not always cancer. The only way to answer this question is to have your family physician examine you.
See doctor: Make an appointment with your doctor for evaluation and treatment plan
Depends: Shoulder, shortness of breath and chest pain has many causes and many implications. Some are minor and some can be life threatening. More information a complete history and physical is recommended by your doctor or to the emergency room if you indeed have these symptoms. Good luck
Muscle or blood leak: Could be that you ruptured a small capillary (blood vessel) or stretched a muscle into prolonged contraction and it knotted up, like a trigger point
