Lump behind shoulder

Common Questions and Answers about Lump behind shoulder


Avatar f tn I have a lump in my right shoulder. The size and texture change daily. It can be small and soft, or hard and larger. It has not really gotten any bigger over the last couple of months (had it for going on four months now) and I have been diagnosed with Lupus since September. This lump is painful to the touch and sometimes even if its not touched.
Avatar n tn i looked where it hurt and there is a hard bump/lump behind her ear on the bone part (not on the ear itself). i touched it and it hurts. it's about as big as an eraser on top of a pencil or a pea. it is not red or anything (skin color). i get very worried about these kind of things and will give her dr. a call but in the mean time i was wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to what it may be? like i said, i am worried.
Avatar n tn My 14 year oldCollie has a lump just behind her shoulder. If you go up the bone of the leg to the top of the shoulder it is just behind and follows the shoulder lengthwise about 6 cm and is about 2cm wide. she has been tender there for a while, but it is only today i found the lump when she turned a bit sharpish as I brushed her. She has not got a limp. The lump is not attached to the shoulder.
1748247 tn?1311803202 But as to the lump and the swollen mass on my shoulder they don't know what it is. My take on this is that what ever this lump or knot is behind my ear has nothing to do w/any salivatery gland, because the lump is behind the ear and not in my mouth. As to the swelling I feel that its to the lump behind my hear that is causing my jaw muscle and neck muscle to swell, as a defense to the lump behind my ear. I am also feeling numbness in my L.
999062 tn?1250043156 My daughter has a lump behind her ear that has slowly grown too lately and has gotten harder. She doesn't have the headaches though. We just got referred to a dermatologist to have it taken out. The doctor said it was just a benign cyst and fairly common. I'm not sure if that's what you've got or not but I'd guess it is. I hope you find out soon so you won't worry! Take care.
Avatar f tn You are probably having pressure symptoms from lump behind the ear. It is difficult to comment without examination. Lump behind the ear could be an abscess, folliculitis (hair follicle infection), lipoma (localized collection of fat), a cyst, an inflamed lymph node or a neurofibroma (localized harmless swelling in of nerve and connective tissue).
Avatar m tn This little lump behind my right ear is now going down my shoulder and getting worse. I've been to the DR. and had numerous tests, such as the MRI,Ex Ray,ultra sound and they say its nothing. I also have trouble sleeping on my side.
Avatar m tn The last few days that area also feels like it is getting a hard lump under my skin, but this lump is not sore,warm like the boil behind my ear. My right side upper shoulder/neck is also sore. When I turn my head right it is sore. I'm not really sure what this all means. Do you think I should go to the doctor?
Avatar f tn My teenage daughter has a hard lump on her back below her right shoulder that hurts not long ago she had lumps behind ears Dr.
Avatar m tn My boyfriend developed a lump behind his right ear that hurts when touched. It recently began to swell and gave him nerve pain that shot down his neck and shoulder, he also experienced a headache from this on the right side if his head. We went to the emergency room (no insurance so no one else would see him) and the physician's asst. touched his neck and told him it was a cyst. She referred him to an ear, nose and throat doctor.
Avatar n tn I hurt from my ear, down the neck into the left shoulder down the arm and into my back behind the shoulder blade. However, I also have breast and chest pain to add to it. I have had MRI's, CT, EMG, sonogram, Physical Therapy, given a cortisone shot in the breast area and been put on a prednisone dose pack, because all the swelling has made it difficult to breathe. I first thought I might have a rotor cuff injury, but they ruled that out.
Avatar n tn I also have these problems. I have a small lump behind each ear but the 1 behind the right ear is bigger. I am also getting headache, earache and have a sore throat. I went to the doctor 3 days ago and they said it was a throat infection and the lumps were just lymph nodes. I dont see how a throat infection would give me headache and earach. He gave me antibiotics but they dont seem to be helping. I am going back to the doctor tomorrow as I am very scared now.

Avatar f tn ve also noticed I have the same pressure point in my right shoulder as in my left where all the pain seemed to start,right on the outer top of shoulder,I have a lump or bump that is very tender to touch. The pain in lower back/rib area is like there is someone standing behind me with a finger or two pressed into my back.

Avatar n tn I could barely raise my arm above shoulder height and had impaired movement of the shoulder arm behind my back. Pain was a 7 to 8 on a scale of 1 to 10. Couldn't sleep one night last week. I have an appointment with the orthapaedic (surgeon ?) doctor this coming Friday (9/7). The pain is subsiding and arm movement is returning to normal! Should I cancel the appointment? Not sure that there is anything that can be done. Your thoughts?
Avatar f tn now its moved to in between my shoulder blade. today it has moved to my right shoulder. the pain is intense and i cannot sleep with it. My left ear is sore and i get swelling behind my ear also, my sinuses are a problem, as the decompression surgery involved cutting away the sinus membrane on both sides. i have a cough as its due to nasal dripping irritating. i have today though had severe pain in the middle of my chest, quite sharp spasms of pain. could any of this be related.
Avatar n tn It feels like gas and then I start burping and that seems to help but it's not enough, the pain keeps radiating lower into the front of my abdomen and then upward in the pit of my stomach below the breatbone, it burns, and then moves upward behind the breastbone. Then it gets behind my right shoulder blade and hurts all over my back again and it feels like I've been hit with a baseball bat. It feels bruised and achy. This morning's attack was the worst so far.
Avatar n tn I would be anything from schoolwork, to internet browsing, to watching tv, to eating, to even just laying down in the dark and I would get these intense sharp pains on the back of my head behind my right ear. This pain only occurs in this location and it comes and goes. At first the pains were simply a nuesance as they would come and go and weren't that bad, but lately they're getting worse causing me to stop what I'm doing until they go away.
Avatar n tn It was behind her lung and ate through up into her breast and up into her shoulder joint, dislocating it. Her doctor told her and us that she just had arthritis! She died in 1998 after suffering for months. there is alot of cancer in her family, throat,and brain cancer on my grandfathers side, and my grandmother was cancer free for 25 years before it took her.
Avatar n tn Even right down to the swallowing, the mildly achy back pain on the back exactly behind the lump. Weird!!!!! Thanks again!
Avatar f tn I got a three inch long lump after the shot then a week later my upper arm and shoulder is painful and it is very painful or raise my arm out to my side. I sure hope this pain goes away soon.
Avatar f tn More of a dull aching tingle sensation which moves from the underam to behind my shoulder blade and down my arm (as I write this I am aware of a tingle in my left hand). I especially notice it at night and my mind seems to dwell on it constantly. I have noticed some common factors from the messages and those are 1. I have always suffered from fairly poor posture. 2. I work at a computer for most of the working day. 3.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn I noticed a little pea size lump under my left armpit. I had shoulder/bicep,labrum surgery on Feb. 1,2010 and I noticed it a few days later. I am scared too. I am going to call my dermatologist or primary doctor tomorrow. There is no history of breast cancer in my family. I do not feel the lump has grown and it is not painful to lift my arm. I will keep you all posted.
Avatar n tn After a weeks of non-tender pain from base of my skull down my neck into the top of my shoulders and along my shoulder on the left side unrelated to movement I went to my my internist, who attributed to muscle spasm / tension and gave me a muscle relaxer that didn't help. A few days later I felt the left side of my neck and found a 'lump' that is fairly deep (can't be felt or seen superficially and requires some pressure to feel), long (about 2.5 cm long x 1.
Avatar f tn I have a lump in the muscle of my right upper arm. It is slightly bruised but only hurts when I pick up something heavy. The arm doesn't hurt if I raise it or lower it... only when I pick something up. I recently had shoulder pain but after an injection the pain went away. The knot appeared after I tried reaching slightly behind me with my right arm. The pain was excruciating. Right after that, the knot appeared. What could it be?
