Common Questions and Answers about Lump in neck above collarbone

lump

Hello, I have a lump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>above</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>collarbone</span> on the right side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> and I have no idea to what it is. I have no idea to how long I have had it because it disapears when I look down and when I look up its visible. Its the size of an olive and doesn't hurt when I touch it (not soft). I recently had a blood test a month ago, tested on my common nosebleeds and the results came back all clear. So unless in a month I have developed some form of a cancer I don't know what it is.
Sorry, I have 2 lumps - one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>above</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>collarbone</span> (pea size that changes in size from pea to larger). Feels hard but very smooth, possible thyroid nodule. Lump attached to my chin bone, about pea size but very hard - feels like bone, never changes in size. Have had both lumps for over year and half.
It hasn't grown, but I have since noticed that when I press on the muscles to either side of the lump, those muscles are unbelievably tense, and that tension is contributing to chronic pain in the muscles on the right side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> and shoulders. In addition, I often have numbness in the first three fingers of my right hand, soreness in my right forearm and bicep, and soreness in my right hip. These may all be unrelated, but my left side is not bothered by the same type of pain.
Yesterday my wife came and started massaging my shoulders and she felt a hard lump on the lower left side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> about 2 inches <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>above</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>collarbone</span>. It is something that would have been noticed by her before, not to mention the professional massage that I just had too. It is extremely painful!! Once she touched it, it suddenly bothers me a lot. I cannot strain myself or even talk in a loud voice because the pain from this little lump is so strong.
I have had a lump in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> for 7 years. I have buried my head about it till now afraid of what it may be. The lump is non painfull and about the size of a marble. It is slightly visible and protrudes maybe a tenth of an inch from neck. it has grown very slightly in the seven years. The lump is hard and mobile under skin. it feels like its attached to the skin underneath. the skin over it is normal colored. it is located directly in the middle front of neck just beneath my adams apple.
I noticed on the left side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>above</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>collarbone</span> I have a dime size lump. Its sore to the touch and when I'm not touching it. It like appeared over night. I noticed it and got in a shock of panic. My boyfriend won't touch it to help me find out if its something that needs to be checked. We only have one car and he uses that to get to and from work. Should I go to the ER? Should I wait a few days to see if it goes away? Should I find a doctor associated with that?
In addition to this, I found a small lump in my neck (pea size, maybe smaller), around 2-3 inches <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>above</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>collarbone</span>, near the centre of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>, but slightly to the left. The lump appears to only be attached to the skin above it, as I can pinch the skin around it and move it around freely. After doing quite a bit of research on the internet, I have left myself very worried about potential conditions I could possibly have, including cancers such as thyroid cancer and lymphoma.
Is it that your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> is swelled, or is there actually a lump? A lump in that area could be a swollen lymph node which could be caused by many things.
Enter now, 6 months later, some general difficulty breathing (lungs feel tight and I sometimes wheeze or cough) and several lumps on the left side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>. One <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>above</span> my throat, one right next to my throat, one next to my jaw below my ear, and the most concerning one right by my left collarbone. They've all been noticeable for at least a month.
It is slightly offset to the right but mainly in the front and at the base of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>. Just <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>above</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>collarbone</span>. I went to the doctor and they gave me a strep test and also a mono test and they both came back negative. I have had a low fever, I have been very tired and this lump is just sitting there. It is about quarter size and there is also some swelling starting where the lump is and goes up the side of my neck but the lump is very promanent. What the heck could this be?

Hold the mirror so that you can see the area of your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> just below the Adam's apple and right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>above</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>collarbone</span>. This is the general location of your thyroid gland. Tip your head back, while keeping this view of your neck and thyroid area in your mirror. Take a drink of water and swallow. As you swallow, look at your neck. Watch carefully for any bulges, enlargement, protrusions, or unusual appearances in this area when you swallow. Repeat this process several times.
My wife, a nursing mother, has a small lump on her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>above</span> right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>collarbone</span> and below jaw, for the past about 10 days. It began as pain on the particular spot about 15 days ago and slowly the lump developed. It is more painful now. She had a bout of flu 3-4 days ago. During pregnancy and afterwards her ESR count was in the 40-50 range, though it has not been checked in the past about 5 months. Could this be an indication of any malignancy?
In November I found a lump the size of a pea in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>. Short version...I went to a doctor a total of 8 times in the year after I found that lump. Including visits to family doc, endo, and surgeon. Thyroid tests were fine (tsh ONLY btw) Had that lump biopsied and drained twice (it started filling back up within minutes of being drained). Ultrasounds...you name it they did it and couldn't figure out what that lump was.
I also had a cat scan done because of an inflammation that I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>above</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>collarbone</span>. Severe enough to make my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> look enflamed-right side more so than the left. The cat scan showed so inflammation in my lymph nodes in the anterior or postior of the neck. My immunology test for P-ANCA (mpo) WAS .92 and my ANA was Positive 1:80. Can this inflammation in my neck be because of something else going on in my body? His suggestion was to see an allergist and follow up with him in 8 weeks.
I can't stand for a shirt to touch me from my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>collarbone</span> up. I'm going in for a scope in two weeks, I'll let you know what they say.I just feel like my neck is gonna burst it is so tight.
Hi, went to doc's today about lump on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> just <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>above</span> collar bone and another higher up on other side of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>. Had these for a couple of months and apparently have more smaller lumps that I hadn't noticed. Doc thinks all ok and nothing sinister but feeling a bit worried anyway.
It's a very sharp pain (resulting to putting you in a fetal position because it hurts so bad) in the upper right side just <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>above</span> the breast. My doctor diagnose me with "Costochondritis" Here is a website to check the symtoms out. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/costochondritis/DS00626 But I don't think this is it. It doesn't feel like a bone is affected at all, It's moreso in the breast itself.
(sorry about my typos in the message - supposed to read 'main pain is in the front of the neck', and somehow the word 'name' got in there as a combination!..) the pain is right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>above</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>collarbone</span>, in the middle, a small very tender area, and I had extreme pain inside my throat on swallowing, which seems to have improved a lot. Sudden onset, but now also reasonably sudden disappearance after 10 days/2 weeks. Weird, weird, weird.
I discovered a small movable painless lump (pea sized) on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> (under the skin) on the left side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>above</span> right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>above</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>collarbone</span> (in line with my ear). Any idea what this can be or what concern I should discuss with my doctor. I have an appointment scheduled for last week. When I was 18, I discovered a lump on the left side as well....but it was very painful. It grew to the size of a small apple and the doctors were very concerned.
I've recently noticed a swelling in my neck 1" across and just below thyroid area. Been to docs who doesn't think it's thyriod as situated too low. She's taken bloods and referred me for a scan. Any ideas? It's hard, moves when I swallow. Apart from swelling, health is really good, no recent infections. I'm a 52 post-menopausal woman.
First I'd like to suggest that you "search" using the terms core biopsy with suction and you should find a site that will describe the entire procedure; you've had a core biopsy previously so this procedure shouldn't really cause you much worry. The wait for results of course is always the worst of all ... just ask anyone; even waiting for the results of a Mammogram can be a stress producer.
I had a long time before i could get into therapy, afyer 4 long months in a hard collar. I never lost the pain in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> and shooting pain in right side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> and radiating down my arm into hand and fingers tingling. fusion at c5-c6-c7. after a long time in rehab and therapy , i was sent to pain=management, i had several set of 3 injectons that only gave me breif releif. then i had a nerve block at c7 that didn't help but showed the dr. where some of the problem might be.

The lymph node in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> did not go away. In march I had severe pain in my breasts and they found a cyst there. Did ultrasound and also looked at my lymph glands on the left side and two were swollen. They told me it was probably nothing. Months passed and I was ok. Then June came and I had exams and was under a lot of stress. My dad had bought back then. an ear thermometer and we measured our temperatures just for fun. I then noticed that mine was elevated around 37.7.
At the worst times it feels like there is a lump in my throat and pressure in my chest and I also get really painful hiccups sometimes, just one or two at a time. Another Dr. said it was just stress and honestly I think he thought I was making it up because it wasnt happening while I was in his office which wasnt helpful! The one time I want the gurgles... If anyone knows of anythign that actually works I would love to hear it!
I have been caughing for about five months, Mostly when lying down. I can't sleep through a complete night unless I take pain killers. "TRAMADOL" I am a vet and have Ebeen diagnosed with "DENSELY CALCIFIED CONGLOMERATE OF HILAR NODE IN THE RIGHT HILUM FROM OLD GRANULOMATOUS DISEASE " I worked around asbestos for around six years. My caught kinda feels like it originates in my upper throat.
Although my problems have been fairly recent about a month ago I woke up and while shaving i noticed a lump in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> just <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>above</span> my left collarbone. I didn't think much of it until my face started to tingle, and my ear started to hurt incredibly. I went to the doc he sent me to a specialist drew some blood and sent me on my way. The blood came back fine i guess he said that everthing looked normal. Now the fnb was the most painfull thing i have had done in my life.
I have had it for months on and of. I have a lump constanly in the crease of my finger. If I go climbing or carry shopping bags its really painful. So I try to be careful not to put pressure on it to stop the "pop" which is even more excrutiating. Hope someone out there can help.
No symptoms- I went to my primary and showed him the lump in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>- mine was visible and palpable. He sent me for the ultrasound. I was otherwise fine. I just had a total thyroidectomy on May 30th- 2.3cm and .1cm pap. thyca in left lobe as well as 2 out of 7 lymph nodes involved. I just finished my RAI treatment and isolation as of today. Do you feel any lumps??? Do the water test- tilt you head back and swallow a sip of water to see if you notice something "move" in your neck.
