Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
Is the lump painful?
Does anything make the pain better or worse?
keeping it immobile with an ace bandage but after a few hours the bandage felt too tight because my arm had swelled.
Okay, this may be an inflamed bursa, called bursitis
It is usually treated with an anti-inflammatory drug like motrin or aleve
That usually helps the swelling and pain
Sometimes, antibiotics are required if it is infected
They have to be drained, don't they? What caused me to get this? I didn't do anything yesterday to warrant an injury and simply woke up this morning with it and now another one is forming on my right shoulder blade.
If it is infected it may have to be drained
It may have been caused by irritation within the bursa

I'm happy I could help
