Is a bump between the shoulder blades a symptom of a muscle strain?

I have pain in my right shoulder. I also have a small bump between my trap and the round of my shoulder. I carry equipment regularly as a musician. I didn t feel the pain until late Friday night. I m wondering if it s some sort of muscle strain, or if I might have bumped into something. My email is YYYY@YYYY Thanks... Michael

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

It may be due to carnification leading to skin thickening.
Lipoma or Sebaceous Cyst or dermoid may possible.
Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

I strained my muscle in my left shoulder back area around 2 months ago . I still have issues with it . When it spasms up I have limited mobility in my neck (can t turn all the way to the left) and the inner lining of my left arm gets very sensitive and I can t even lift anything with it. The pain just radiates up my neck , in the shoulder area and down my aim. Is this more than a muscle strain ?

I have what feels like just a muscle strain just below my right shoulder blade. However the pain seems to be spreading upto both shoulder blades and around the right side of my mid back. I am not sure if this is associated but I am also having difficulty swallowing. This just started about 5 days ago while I was cleaning mold from my bathroom.
