I have a hard small lump on my shoulder. It

I have a hard small lump on my shoulder. It is located on the tip of my left acromion (I googled this to try and be more specific). It hurts when I touch it, the pain is almost the same as when touching a bruise. Skin looks the same. The lump is slighly smaller than a pinky nail, hard and doesn't move. It is not completely spherical, kind of like a "()" shape. Asked my dad who is a doctor, he said it was a calcification but he didn't run any tests and once I almost died from apendicitis because he told me it was nothing.
How do I make a doctor run a biopsy? I have a healthplan but I don't know what to do exactly.

I have a hard lump on my clavicle very near the shoulder, about the size of a small olive. It s immovable, not sore to the touch (although it aches a bit *after* I explore it) and the skin around it isn t reddened in any way. I haven t experienced any weakness or lack of mobility in my shoulder. I haven t experienced an injury recently. I am 60, 5 7 , and generally in good health. What might it be?

I am 16 years old, I weigh 11 stone 10 pounds and am 5 foot 3 inches tall. For about a year I have had a small, hard, colourless lump on the top right side of my back. It has recently started hurting when I touch it. I have also recently developed very small red spots on my back and shoulder which are painless. The lump has never got bigger and it has become slightly smaller and sometimes I get an aching in my spine. I haven t suffered any other problems except the pain when the lump is touched. I suffered from mild asthma when i was younger but it hasn t effected me since i was about 13.
