Hello everyone, I have this lump on my back right underneath my left shoulder blade. At first I thought it was just a knot because its movable, but its been there a really long time and has been causing some pain lately. I don't go to the doctor very often....really do not even know what kind of doctor I would go to for this. Anyone have any clue about what this could be? Thanks as always.

Start with a family physican 'it could just be a common cyst.

Go to your family doctor. It could be just a lump of fat that will disappear, but it should be checked out. Good luck!

Exactly what I was going to say, but if it is growing or in pain, or large, very wise to get it checked out

My dad had a lump like that, and it was a benign cyst. When it got to the size of a golf ball, he had it removed. It came back again, but not as large as it was originally.

It's definitely worth a trip to the doctor so they can have a look at the lump.
