Lump in neck above shoulder

Common Questions and Answers about Lump in neck above shoulder

lump

It hasn't grown, but I have since noticed that when I press on the muscles to either side of the lump, those muscles are unbelievably tense, and that tension is contributing to chronic pain in the muscles on the right side of my neck and shoulders. In addition, I often have numbness in the first three fingers of my right hand, soreness in my right forearm and bicep, and soreness in my right hip. These may all be unrelated, but my left side is not bothered by the same type of pain.
Hi im 19 and experiencing the same thing in between my neck and shoulder area. The lump feels like ball.. I can feel its spherical shape and can move it around. Ita not painful, but if anything comes in contact, i can feel some pain. What is it?
I have a lump on the left side of my neck, just above the shoulder. It's tender to the touch, and is about the size of half a golf ball. I assume it's just a cyst or something, but what's worrying me is that for the last year I've have had chronic, yet weak kidney, lung, testicle and abdominal pain. It doesn't really help that I'm overweight, but yeah, just letting you know. I've had an increase in small moles on my neck, including one where the lump is located.
Hump on the cervical spine is what it is. Cervical is above the shoulder blades in the neck area. I have had this & still have it. My hump is on the disks between C8 & T1 at the base of my neck. although the doc wouldnt ever give me a xray. It is caused by a few things. One is poor posture. Slumping your neck over is what many of us do hours on end & esp on the computer. Also maybe your pillow at night which is another of my problems.
What muscle could be pulled that would cause pain in both above the chest and my armpit/shoulder? Or what ligament could/would be torn? My doctors don't know what to do with me anymore. I've tried Ibruprophen AND aspirin as well as Naproxen, but I'm not sure if they work seeing as how the pain comes and goes so quickly anyway. And, do pulled muscles last for more than 7 months? It's not a pain I have every day, and I seem to excecise okay, too.
The dumbness and tingling is gone from the fingers but I continue to have pain up the outside of my hand near the wrist up to my elbow. Within the past 3 months the lump in my shoulder has returned, which is approx. the same length of time it took for it to show up after the first surgery. I saw my doctor for the shoulder one month ago, he took xrays and said they were negative. He diagnoised me as chronic pain syndrome at that time.
Fast forward a year and I am still not the same person.The lump in my ear/neck area is constantly tender and painful. The majority of the time I have an earache. This has been causing me discomfort and pain now for a year! I feel dismissed by the doctor I saw and cannot afford to keep going back without results. I need a direction or suggestions as to what to do next. I am losing sleep over this and feel an urgency to press on. I am a female, age 42, 5;3", 135 lbs.Thank you.
It is amazing that so many of us have the same type of pain. Mine is in the right shoulder area. The entire shoulder,neck up to ear,trapezius and shoulder blade. This has been going on for years. I had acromioplasty surgery 3 years ago. The doctor saw an impingement and we thought it would relieve the pain. It did nothing. Now, I have seen another doctor and had new MRI's done. I have a partial tear of the infrapsinatus and arthritis in my AC joint.
I have also discovered a lump in my neck right behind my ear and by my jaw line. It doesn't move and it isn't painful but I'm very concerned about it. I've been gaining weight and have been extremely fatigued. I just moved to Florida and don't have a doctor yet. Do you think I should have it checked at an urgent care or hospital? Does anyone know what it could possibly be?
Hello. I have a lump on the left side of my neck, half to an inch away from the shoulder It i think started 2 years ago (maybe earlier and i didn't think anything about it) beginning as a small lump (pea shape), which over the span of a week turns bigger and bigger to the size of a walnut. going from non-sensitive to very sensitive to touch as it grows, also as it progresses to get bigger it then turns pink into a very noticeable red (many co-workers thought i had a hickey on my neck).
I noticed a 2 pea sized lump just last night. One lump (left side of my neck) just 3 inches above the end of my collar bone and the other lump just an inch above almost inline to my other lump, few inches down the back of my ear. Mine are both a bit painful, hard & still. I told my hubby about it cause I'm worried it might be something serious cause a couple of weeks ago I feel dizzy but dizziness just come & go, also I've been complaining about my backache since I was in grade school.
Since then I am having trouble with pain in the neck and shoulder area just below the fusion area. I wake in the morning with a headache then turns to pain in lower neck and shoulders. I have talked to the neurosurgeon who did the surgery and he shrugged his shoulders and said I have no idea and sent me back to my neurologist. He gave me a series of injections in both shoulders and the pain stopped for a couple days but then came right back.
The worst one of all that I cant hardly take anymore is when I walk each step theres a squish clicking noise and it not only sounds like in the back of my neck but its in my forehead right above the bridge of my nose too. I cant tell for sure though if its coming from just my neck or both neck and forehead. I have a ear problem, tapping sound I can feel right before it happens when I move around sometimes, or just noises makes a muffled sound only when its quiet.

I feel pain and pressure radiating from this lump in my neck, ear, shoulder and eye all on the right hand side. This pain is steadily getting worse and I have had a couple of occasions where I have fainted. I have in the last two days discovered another lump on the top of my head roughly where my crown is which is quite sore. The first lump doesn't hurt any more than normal when pressed, but on examination my doctor pressed something that made a pain shoot up my head and down my neck.

Wish I could I was having fewer chest pains, but I'm having them more often each time with worsening pain along with neck, shoulder and arm pain on the left side. I'm only 20yrs old am in great shape and usually have a great diet; lately nothing tastes right or doesn't have taste at all...I haven't slept through the night in almost 5wks.

It is situated above and to the right of her left shoulder on the back, almost at the nape of the neck (so between shoulder blade and neck but up high at the nape of the neck). It is under the skin and can be felt at the nearly same position even if the skin is shifted around (we think it may not be a part of the skin), it feels like it is situated on the muscle under the skin. She has had it a week and she finds it annoying.
On Sep 28 which was my birthday I woke up feeling a lump in my left breast.I've done a self breast exam on both my breast but the found nothing in the right. My left breast felt a little tender also I'm a little worried even though it doesn't run in my family. I'm unable to go to the doctor to get an exam done because I'm unemployed and that amount of money given to me can do but so much.
Hi everyone...I too found a lump in my neck. I had a CT scan done last week and they said that I have two small kidney shaped lumps. I believe they were about 1.4 cm in size. I see that everybody keeps asking about night sweats, pain in thumb and stomach pain. I have had all of these symptons. I did not associate any of this with my lumps and now I am very concerned. I also had my Thryoid removed 30 years ago, because they thought it was malignat, fortunately it wasn't.
I also have noticed slight hyperpigmentation right below the back of my neck between my shoulder blades that itches sometimes. I'm sure it's a silly post and it sounds like I'm falling apart.. So before I get lectured to just go to the DR, I know I should just get the sucker checked out, but I'm just curious if it seems benign to an outsider with anymore experience with this sort do stuff than me.
-Is a burning sensation in the middle of the chest with pain between shoulder blades and a stiff neck a reason to go the E.R? Can a flu shoot precipitate all this? What are typical signs of a heart attack? Given my hystory what do you suggest?

I've had the same problem for a few months now - a sensation that there is a lump in the left side of my throat, towards the back of the neck, just above the collar bone. It usually bothers me only in the mornings, especially when I drink cold water. The sensation gets worse when I swallow with my head tilted down and to the left. I also have been getting acid reflux in the mornings recently, which coincided with the onset of this lump sensation in my throat.
(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. i will go to the doc eventually!
I also have the lump that has been growing in size over the last 4-5 years in the xyphoid area. Also have difficulty swallowing. Don't sleep on my stomach often - more of a side sleepr. Glad to hear that it is not serious.
Use a large pot of water and place pads in to a boiling point and then keep on medium boil adding extra water as needed and then take out the pad or pads and place on three layers of heavy towels folding each towel one at a time. Place a thin towel over the neck and also the shoulder and then place the hot towels over those areas and leave on for 20 mins before and sometimes after exercises.
"tightness feeling in [your] throat " can be from many reasons, this globus sensation that paulyK mentions is a good term for it. Anxiety, asthma, GERD acid reflux, foreign bodies, these need evaluation by your doctor.
