Should I be worried for soft tissue mass on trapezius muscle?

hi, i am a 31 year old female, height 1.68m weight 48kg. i have a soft tissue mass in my right trapezius muscle and am scheduled for an MRI. there was no pain or numbness in the area or my arms, and my ability to grip was normal. i was born with scoliosis and had it corrected when i was 18. what could be causing the mass and is this a cause for alarm?

most lumps like these turn out to be totally benign. It could be a lipoma or a simple cyst. Best to wait for the MRI result - that will give us the answer.

Try not to worry too much about it.

best wishes
