Had surgery to remove tumour from back of shoulder. Having pain. What could be causing the pain?
My husband had surgery alittle over a year ago to have a non cancerous Intermuscular Lymphoma/fatty tumor removed from the back of his right shoulder , he is still having severe pain with this, is determined there is something going on in there, the tumor was about the size of a softball. Any suggestions on what it could be causing the pain after this long? Thank you for any help
Thanks for writing in.
I think what you are talking about is a lipoma and not a lymphoma. There could be several reasons for the pain including damage to a ligament or nerve. I would suggest the first step would be to perform a MRI of the shoulder joint to ensure that there was no damage to the ligaments. You would need to see your orthopaedic surgeon again for this.
Hope this helps
thanks for ur query
there may be many reasons for that
1. nerve damage during surgery
2. clot may be there irritating nerves there
4. incomplete removal
do consult ur surgeon and manage accordingly
