Lump in muscle area by upper shoulder. Should I be worried?

I recently noticed a lump in my upper shoulder area. It's sore to touch like a muscle sore but there is definitely a lump. I didn't have it yesterday before my girlfriend gave me a massage. So I suspect that when she was giving me a massage while I was lying face down on the bed, I may have positioned myself oddly and created a muscle knot. Is this possible? Or am I looking at something potentially dangerous? I looked online about these bumps and saw something about fat collection in these lumps. My girlfriend did do a fat rolling massage on my back. Any relation? The bump isn't visible from the outside it's only if you push into it that you can feel the bump. Any advice will be great. Thanks.

Hiya,

If it doesn't go away in a few days, call the doc and have it looked at for peace of mind. :)
Good Luck and Good health, Chrissy WebMD Community Staff
