About 3 years ago a friend was massaging my back n I went to school for massage therapy so I know how to massage under the shoulder blades so I was walking my friend through it so they can massage under my shoulder blades cuz on my right side it was hurting my friend felt what we thought was a knot under my shoulder blade.
3 years later the knot is still there, bigger and causing much more pain. I've had a cough but just chalked it up to it being just a smoker's cough.
I'm 35 and have been smoking since I was 12 or 13. At 15 I started using hard drugs & smoking was how I used.
The pain is getting much worse but the mass under my right shoulder blade feels so much better when its massaged. I feel like my health is now quickly deteriorating.
My right eyelid has started twitching, I wake up with my right hand numb tingling and sometimes swollen. The lymph node on my left side neck is constantly swollen.
I googled my symtoms and that's when I found out about the pancoast tumor.
