Hi Khoirotin,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Lumps on the shoulder close to the neck can come from abnormalities in the skin, muscles, joints, to components in them, such as bones, lymph nodes, and so on. It needs to be clarified, how big is the lump? What's the consistency like? How long has it been around? Is it getting bigger? Is it easy or difficult to move? Does it contain fluid or pus?


Some of the causes that can cause a lump on the shoulder close to the neck are:

Normal bony prominences (commonly seen in people with thin stature)

Dislocation (shift) of the shoulder joint
Tumors, eg lipomas, fibromas, cysts, sarcomas

Lymphadenopathy (enlarged lymph nodes), eg due to tuberculosis, syphilis, cytomegalovirus, lymphoma, cat scratch
Skin infections, eg warts, folliculitis, acne

Keloids (formation of excess scar tissue after inflammation)
Nevus (mole), and so on

If the lump doesn't appear to be from a normal bony prominence, you should see a doctor immediately. If necessary, the doctor may suggest that you undergo further tests, such as x-rays, ultrasound, or tissue biopsy so that the appropriate treatment can be determined.


Meanwhile, avoid over-pressing the lump that appears, including massaging it. Always keep yourself clean, namely by bathing regularly and wearing clean clothes. Also avoid applying any medication or substance to the lump unless directed by a doctor.


Hope it helps ya..
