Painful lump on the back of shoulder/neck, unable to raise arm. Tried Motrin, cold compress, heating pad. What could this be ?
I am a 36yr old male. I am in considerably good health, however for about 6 months I have had a lump on the back of my shoulder/ neck . It s painful and hard. It hasn t gotten absolutely painful and today I was unable to raise my arm or turn my head. I ve taken Motrin and used a cold compress and heating pad . What could this be all about. I m a Vet and if no relief by morning my wife is insisting I go to the ER. Any advice on what this could be about?
Hi, from history it seems that you might be having either Infected enlarged lymph node or Infected sebaceous cyst or Lipoma. Consult surgeon and get examined. After proper diagnosis plan of treatment can be decided accorfingly. Ok and take care.
