    Has anyone ever developed a lump on your shooting shoulder? Right on the muscle where the recoil pad mounts. I'm talking a full time lump, not just right after you shoot a few hundred. Thanks,

    Does this lump move around with the skin or does it feel attached to the muscle?

    You should be having it looked at by a professional right away.

    This forum might be good for much useful and useless information, but this isn't one of those times. Go to the doctor. Mark

    Do as others have said above. GET IT LOOKED AT NOW. A friend had a lump on his neck and it wasn't good. He found that out to late. Once you find out what it is I will tell you what happened. GET IT LOOKED AT NOW. DO NOT WAIT, MAKE TIME TO DO SO.

    Do you mean a puffed up area where the stock sits? I get it also...more lately. I need to get a better pad and recoil system. Hopefully, that's just what you need also.

    No. But, I get a chip on mine when I don't shoot good.

    William,
    I had something happen that I think might be what is happening to you.I bought a new gun,it was a tad too long for me and a lump developed on my shoulder.I had the gun fitted for me and now the lump has disappeared after some time.Is this gun new to you? Was it fitted to you? I think the other poster are right in having it looked at by a doctor.

    Mine is called a lipoma, an encapsulated cyst that contains a fatty waxy material. It is classified as a cosmetic issue if I wanted to have it surgically removed so I deal with it. I can move it around under the skin . It is about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. This info has been verified by my dermatologist and two GP s . I shoot using gracoil or rad systems and 1 oz load. I may get it removed next winter.
    Listen to the advice of others and see a doctor. In 1983 I had a lymph node that swelled in my groin. I had it removed and they found lymphoma. Had tests. And then 5 months of chemo. Knock on wood I was lucky. If I have an issue I will contact my MD . Early detection and diagnosis will yield greater success than lets wait and see.

    Good luck
