    Doctor Corenman,
    I am eternally grateful for the thoracotomy you performed on me in 2001. It is still perfect. Something extremely heavy fell onto the back of my neck a month ago. A lump developed on the back of my neck the next day and has not changed or decreased. At different times during the day, I have serious pain in my neck. I am experiencing hard “electric shock” like pains in my neck which radiate into my right shoulder. I am experiencing pain down both arms and pain and numbness and weakness in my hands.
    What is my problem? What is the solution?
    Thank you and eternally grateful,
    John

    A heavy object that dropped onto the back of your neck with resultant pain and a “lump” could be any number of things from contusion of muscles to ligament injury to fracture. You need a workup including imaging.
