Large lump on shoulder, itching, swelling, pain on pressing. Causes and treatment?

my shoulder has a large swolen lump that appears sometimes that itches. I dont know what it is or what is causing it. it always occurs then goes away for a long time then comes back. it swells about an inch above my normal skin level. again, it itches and when i poke it or push on it it hurts and it feels ike it may be hollow but it is a thick area...not just a bubble on my skin.
