Lump at upper shoulder

Common Questions and Answers about Lump at upper shoulder

lump

I found a breast lump in early July and biopsy revealed a benign mass in early September. my mom died of breast cancer at 44. Since finding the lump, I've been suffering from some intermittent sharp pain in my right shoulder area. It started off dull and not very frequent. Now it's more frequent although I don't know that I can classify it as "severe". The painful areas hurt to touch. I have tender, painful areas in my right shoulder and a few spots on my left side too.
A few days ago, I noticed a small lump had formed on my upper back, just above the shoulder blade. At the time it was basically the same tone as the rest of my skin, but felt like something hard about the size of a pea just under the skin. Over the past few days it has gotten rather red (with tenderness and slight redness surrounding it for about an inch) and is somewhat painful when pressed.

Her pain in her elbow, upper arm and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> went away! I don't want to second guess my doctors, but at the same time, the constant pain, the resultant very high blood pressure (even though I've been on bp medication) which I think comes from the high stress of living with this terrible pain in my upper arm, elbow, and shoulder requires that I search on my own, like everyone here is also doing, for an answer that will work for me.
This weekend my wife tasked me to feel an area of her upper back, just below her neck and to the left, between her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> blade and her spine. I felt the area and found a lump, just under the skin, about the size of a lima bean. I thought it felt somewhat rubbery, and I could grab the sides of it and pull it away a little, but it's in a wierd place for a growth of this kind. She also has a much smaller one right where her skull and neck come together.

It started to get better but then I got the same pain in the right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> which travelled down my arm. At this point a lump appeared on my left side accross my 1st rib which was very painful to touch. The doctor I saw said it could be costocondritis. However the lump seemed to go away after a few days but the pain remained in my right shoulder. It then moved through my chest area around my heart and I had difficulty breathing as it hurt too much to expand my lungs fully.
I have pain and discomfort in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> too. Had an MRI in July - implants were intact. August - Severe stabbing pains upper area of right breast.

Also states 'Silicone can not do this to the body. Doesn't cause these side effects.
for prevention you probably want to work on proper upper body posture (maybe periodic use of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> supports/braces) and the appropriate strengthening exercises. If you do improve your clavicle bump problem I'd be curious to know, because i've been working on mines for almost a full year now.
For the last week or so I have been having stabbing pain in my left upper quadrant, just under my breast. When I take a deep breath the pain intesifies severely. Today, the pain spread from the front of my body into the back and also up into my left shoulder.

Has anyone ever heard of chronic pancreatitis with enzyme levels in the high end of normal? His pain is in his upper left abdomine and at times wraps around to his back. The pain never goes away and sometimes peaks at a 8 or 9 on a scale of 1 - 10. He has just started to see a physcologist that specializes in chronic pain. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Good luck to your daughter.

I have this small (slightly painful most of the time) lump under my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> blade. Sometimes the pain can increase and radiate down my arm but it's nothing unbearable. On a 1 to 10, I would say the pain - at its worst - is a 4 . The lump is not really visible but you can feel it when you push down and move back and forth in that area. Sometimes, when I stretch that area (turning my neck to the right and looking down), I feel it pop/snap (just a lil bit, not always).
Age 15, male. 125 lbs Alright, well there is a lump like thing on my left side of my neck. It has been there for at least a year and a half (maybe longer). There is like two parts of it, but its sort of like a cyst. They are located in the same area so I'm pretty sure it's definitely related. Its not connected to my skin, but is connected (as far as I can tell) to my neck. It's not a hard lump, I want to say it is a little squishy but not too squishy.
Since then the aches, cramps, tingling, cold sensations and such have gotten worse and expanded to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span>, neck back, armpit and rib area. my left side of my chest does hurt at times and I think I am having a heart attack, but again the cardiologist says it is just fine. Is it possible to have some sort of infection in your muscles or nerves or something?
Hi I have had this pain in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> more like my upper <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> above the blade. and when I touch the area it hurts and feels very weird kind of like a knot but way worse like rubberbands or something. It isn't normal. and when I use my arm lift something etc it kinda bothers me. I was wondering if anyone knew what it could be? I am going to see a doc this week and try and figure it out bc it is not getting any better it just gets worse and hurts.
right now my right lobe is swollen, I have hashitoxosis, and yes it feels like a golf ball at times, my jaw and ears hurt, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> pain and headaches. (last time it was all on my left side).... I had to keep pushing this time to gey them to run more tests, when he found the antibodies in April, he said the lab made a mistake last July when I first started seeing him. Have a full thyroid panel done. Others here know more than I about numbers, Uptake scans, biopsies etc....
A few years ago I noticed I had a lump on my upper back towards the left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> it at the time also had a small black dot in the middle. I experienced pain with it as well. I thought it went away so I thought nothing of it until recently I noticed it is still there and the black dot is a little bigger and the pain is more intense this time with it. It is like a burning pain that generates around the lump and continues to my upper back & neck areas, with intense pain in the lump area.
Following a trigger point injection over two months ago of lidocaine and Markane that did not improve the muscle pain and spasms in my shoulder, neck and back, I was left with a painful knot that I can physically feel under my skin at the point of injection in my upper back just under my right shoulder blade.
After the surgery the pain did subside for a short while, but only to come back at full force and then some. I can feel a small lump and thought I might have yet another cyst, but have been back to my surgeon 2 times and he is not concerned. He wanted to send me to physical therapy, and this did not settle well with me, because I have not even had any xray/MRI/CTscan on this area. What is there is an underlying condition and physical therapy would just harm it.
ER/PR neg HEU2 neg, which was MISSED by mammagram, I felt a lump and the US confirmed it. At the time I asked for scans to be sure it had not spread, they said there was no need since I had no symptoms, I knew this was wrong but I was scared and wanting to get the cancer out. I had a mastecomy and node removal followed by dose dense chemo, I couldn't handle the taxol and stopped after one treatment. anyway..I had reconstruction with tissue expander starting in March.
I have lost weight recently and noticed the lump, but also I have noticed a lump in the upper part of my stomach, which probably has me worried more. I don't know if this is related, but it is making me look like I am pregnant. I just wonder if any or all of this chest and stomach stuff is related? Let me know if anyone has any insight on this.
For about a week now, I've had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> blade pain, on the right. It's worse at night, when I lay down, and everyday motions hurt. The last few days, however, my right arm has been tingly - akin to when it falls asleep, only not so bad, and it doesn't go away. Today, they achy pain/tingliness (sp?) has radiated to the right side of my neck. Occasionally, when the shoulder blad pain flares up, my underarm and chest burn as well. This is all on my right side.
I had an endoscopy and colonscopy about 5 weeks ago and am still sore from the endoscopy - was awake throughout the whole procedure which I didn't find too bad but afterwards was in a great deal of upper stomach pain and vomited a lot. Nothing at all was found which was very good but still feel very sore around midriff and at times very nauseous - biopsies normal as far as I know.
i too have had a small pea sized lump on my ear at the back, just near to the crease. (if you put your finger just behind the lobe and rest it in the soft part, it is just above there) it is tender to touch and has been there for nearly 3 months. i dont think it has changed in size and it isnt a different colour so you wouldnt see it there until you feel it. i have not had the chance to go and see the doctor mainly because im not that worried about it but im curious to know what it could be.
