My husband got a swelling on upper back on left hand side below the arm. He believes its a muscle strain because of improper sleeping position while laying down with head on hand and body weight on elbow and watching movie. Before a few months, when he started gym, he had developed the same problem but it subsided as he stopped going to gym. He got that swelling again but it felt hard like a lump so scared the hell out of me. We will visit doctor in eve. Till then if you could advice as to how serious it is then i will be really thankful.
