welcome to HealthcareMagic
Since the bump on your shoulder is painful;increasing in size check if it is red or warm to touch it could be due to infection .It is probably a boil & requires treatment so consult a doctor & he may give you a pain killer & even a antibiotic if required & you should feel better.
Take care.
