Thanks for your question. There are few important possibilities which should be investigated and these are ganglion cyst, sebaceous cyst, infective cystic swelling, joint arthritis, growth or mass from bone. I will advise you to see your primary care physician for compete evaluation and tests which should include shoulder x-ray. You can take Tab. Motrin for pain relief and try to see your physician for early examination. Best wishes.
