I play sax. I have been really playing a lot more lately because we are getting ready to record. My wife massages my shoulders and neck all of the time and I even went and had a professional massage 2 weeks ago.
Yesterday my wife came and started massaging my shoulders and she felt a hard lump on the lower left side of my neck about 2 inches above my collarbone. It is something that would have been noticed by her before, not to mention the professional massage that I just had too. It is extremely painful!! Once she touched it, it suddenly bothers me a lot. I cannot strain myself or even talk in a loud voice because the pain from this little lump is so strong. I have lipomas throughout my body, and this does not feel very soft or mobile.
I am waiting for my insurance to kick in, but until then, can anyone help me out? Can this be something serious? Or did I injure myself while straining myself playing the sax?
Thank you so much for your time and consideration!!
