Swelling is the enlargement of organs, skin, or other body parts. It is caused by a buildup of fluid in the tissues.

Get intermittent water-balloon swelling above right clavicle. Can feel it coming on when I walk. Lightheaded. Off balance. Imaging done. All normal.
One possibility: If the "water baloon" happens closer to the shoulder joint it may represent a acromioclavicular joint (ac) cyst, a fluid-filled sac arising in the setting of a long-standing full-thickness rotator cuff tear. Subsequent mechanical wear of the articular capsule of the ac joint, allows passage of fluid from the glenohumeral joint into and often beyond the ac joint. Did you do an MRI of the shoulder? ...Read more
Get intermittent water-balloon swelling just above right clavicle. Can feel it coming on when I walk. Makes me lightheaded?
AC Joint cyst: I have seen patients who present with swelling at the ac joint (where the collar bone meets the shoulder blade) that is intermittent with activity (such as walking). This is typically a cyst that is related to arthritis in that joint. You should be evaluated. I have no way of explaining lightheaded feelings related to this problem so evaluation would be helpful to you. ...Read more

I think my daughter might have broken her clavicle but there's no bruising or swelling but when I touch that area she says it hurts?
May not see bruise: The clavicle is one of the more common bones to break in the body. In kids it can crack & be maintained in place by its surrounding fibrous sheath & the only initial sx may be point tenderness at the point of the crack. Within a day or two a bump may arise over the surface of the bone. If the kid doesn't want to use the arm/shoulder & complains about that location it is worth a visit. ...Read more
If I press just under my right clavicle it is super tender. It feels like a major bruise, yet there is no visible bruise or swelling.
Continue to monitor: I would continue to monitor it. It depending upon where along the clavicle you are experiencing the tenderness it could be a bone bruise, muscle or joint sprain or even tender lymph nodes. In the absence of trauma, decreased function or worsening of symptoms, watching waiting would be appropriate. Certainly, see your primary care physician if it worsens. ...Read more

Probably not: Bursitis is inflammation of the bursal sac between the acromion and rotator cuff. There is rarely enough inflammation to cause swelling. The biceps tendon, which goes along the front of the shoulder can get swollen. Other causes could be a cyst or something called a lipoma. I would see a shoulder specialist. ...Read more

The swelling and bruising will go away but the Popeye deformity will remain unless it is surgically corrected which isn't necessary unless there are other injuries like a rotator cuff tear. ...Read more

It sounds like..: ..some sort of minimal trauma/abrasion. It doesn't sound like a drug/other rash to me. The one-sidedness is not surprising. Many of us, if not most, have some mild spinal asymmetry that causes one scapula to be more prominent than the other. But the real question what could be rubbing hard enough to cause red marks? Perhaps you are very sensitive to the type of fabric in your shirt or laundry soap ...Read more

I recently fell on my shoulder and it popped. After week I still have pain and swelling. What is causing this?
Probably: Most likely yes. After a surgical procedure - especially requiring anesthesia (being put to sleep) - the IV fluids that are given are not quite in the right compartment of the body yet. Therefore, some swelling can be normal. Massive swelling that is asymmetric (is your other leg swollen?) can be a problem after surgery. Blood clots can occur in certain individuals that are post - operative. ...Read more
