Painful lump below collar bone. History of shoulder injury, rotator cuff impingement. Suggest

I have a small lump below my collar bone on my right side it's kind of towards the middle almost at the top. It's VERY painful. And very prominent. Not on the other side. I have had a shoulder injury recently. And have a rotator cuff impingement. And don't know if these two things can be related or not. It's making breathing difficult. Should I go to the ER?

you are suffering from painful lump below right collar bone along with rotator cuff injury.First of all injury and lump are not related.I want to know that what is the duration of lump?Is It soft or hard in feel?Is It growing or not?But you should get done MRI of right shoulder, FNAC, and Biopsy of lump. For pain take analgesic.For rotator cuff impingement Arthoscopy of shoulder is required for diagnosis as well as therapeutic purpose.
get well soon.
