Small lump on shoulder
« on: June 25, 2014, 12:32:15 PM »
Been doing really well for a long while now, but then last night I notice a small lump, smaller than a pea really, and mobile in the tissue on the top of my left shoulder, right near the joint. The skin is slightly discolored on the spot, and I was not freaked out at first. But then it starts creeping up on me, and I know the makings of a freak out when it is coming.

I have no idea how long it has been there--it could be literally years old--and it does not hurt, or bother me (other than psychologically) in any way. I know it is probably nothing, just another lump from growing older (43 now) but I was hoping to stem off a freak out by coming here and chatting with you good folk. Anyone have something like this?

Sounds like a cyst.  Totally normal and harmless.  See a doctor if it becomes painful as they can get infected and need draining.
