I noticed a soft pea size lump above/on my left collar bone about 3 days after getting the flu shot and am wondering if this could possibly be the cause. If anyone knows, please let me know. I am scheduled for a ct scan.

Without any further description, the EMT put his finger right on the lump and told me I had arthritis of the hyoid bone. He gave me some anti-inflamaty drugs. While I was relieved that the EMT recognized my symptoms, I have occasional doubts that something more serious is going on. It really helps me to have you all reporting the same symptoms and concluding its the hyoid bone. I never had any trauma to the neck.
There are lymph nodes along the side of the neck between the ear and collar bone. I think they are called jugular lateral or something like that. They will swell when you have a sinus infection or an infection above your neck.
Hi. Since April I have had pain above my left breast. It's not constantly there, but it comes and goes. Sometimes it feels like a burning pain, other times it feels like a cramp. I've also felt it in my armpit at times and it will also creep up over my shoulder. Although I VERY RARELY feel it on the right side, it DOES happen once in awhile. But for the most part it's been my left side.
Its located an inch below the jaw bone and an inch or so above my collar bone. Any ideas what it could be?
I have just turned 40, but have had a hard lump on my right rib bone (I think) right in the crease around the base of my breast. It has been there for a number of years at least 6 or 7. I had an ultrasound on it and they questioned doing a biopsy but decided not to and just said to have it checked if there were any changes. It is hard to tell if it changes or not. I just have noticed lately that it annoys me and is tender and seems to be bigger...hard to tell.
I noticed a 2 pea sized lump just last night. One lump (left side of my neck) just 3 inches above the end of my collar bone and the other lump just an inch above almost inline to my other lump, few inches down the back of my ear. Mine are both a bit painful, hard & still. I told my hubby about it cause I'm worried it might be something serious cause a couple of weeks ago I feel dizzy but dizziness just come & go, also I've been complaining about my backache since I was in grade school.
I have a tiny olive size lump on right side lower right almost in center above my collar bone. I have been coughing somewhat with phlegm mucous like some kind of cold virus /never smoked. take b/pressure pill. Otherwise good health/veg. for 6 yrs. I see my pulse beating of the lump but No pain. I have bad teeth. can u tell me what it could be?
Last night, my husband noticed a large lump on the side of his neck just above the collar bone. It was very soft, more like fluid build-up than knotted muscle tissue. I searched online and concluded that it was most likely a lymph node, so we went to the walk-in clinic today. The nurse practitioner that saw him confirmed that his lymph nodes were swollen and did blood work for infection and when it came back with nothing, she told him he was fine and nothing was wrong.
Since then I have had lump after lump after lump coming up. They extend down from my collar bone to my breast. It's mostly on my rigth side but i feel some on my left as. Some are soft like this, some are more firm and knotted like a rope but moveable. They are tender to touch (or are now because I've been poking at them so much). Some are tender and some aren't. I went to the dr and am now waiting on an ultrasound appointment but meanwhile I am scared to death.
The first time I remember the problem was when I was 8 months pregnant with my second son, blood volume increase…and a large lump appeared on my neck, left side above the collar bone. I visited an emergency clinic and the doctor there figured it to be a mass, tumor or cyst, and decided to biopsy it. Once he cut into the lump he freaked, got very flustered and shaky, visibly disturbed and admitted he should not have done what he did.
THE COLLAR WILL ALLOW YOUR LOVELY NECK TO STAY LONG AND SLIM SO WEAR IT EVEN IF IT IS 100 DEGREES OUTSIDE! I wore a hard collar for 3 months and a soft collar for 1 and 1/2 months but sleeping in a hard collar all 4 and 1/2 months. 6 weeks after surgery I had physical therapy for 4 months! Now I have a beautiful neck, just like when I was a teenager with a scar that is so minimal, it blends into my crease (I am 56 years old).
Night before last I was feeling around my neck to see if the glands were spreading and I felt a lump above my collar bone on the right side. Yesterday it was hurting all day, and today both sides of my collar bone have golf ball size swelling where the hollow spot is on your collar bone. They don't hurt and are soft, but you can actually see the swelling.
Yesterday I got to remove my soft collar, and I have not had any pain yet. I go for my 1st follow up this Thursday, and hope the X-Ray will show everything is fine. I would highly recommend this surgery if you are having constant, chronic pain and numbness. So glad I had it done!
Our old dog was mauled by a cow some weeks ago. Some time after this we noticed a lump on one of her hind breasts. We took her to the vet yesterday and the vet said she has cancer. Mum and Dad think that if the cancer has spread and isn't contained to the one breast that she should be put down. I disagree. I think she still seems reasonably well and that it would be premature to put her down.
Hello jcaussyn,q  Wanted to comment back to you, with my experience. At about 10 my mother noticed a Lipoma about the size of a walnut on my back. You could only see it if I bent over or wrapped my arms around myself. It was between my shoulder blade and my spine. The doc told us the same thing, " nothing serious, just watch it" so we did. It never did cause me any issues since it was not that noticable even in a swim suit.
It usually goes away on it's own. For me, both episodes lasted lest than 4 weeks. I felt like I was wearing a very tight collar, or had a bone stuck in my throat. It never prevented me from swallowing normally, just felt weird. Look it up on-line for further explanations and suggestions. It is benign and needs no treatment in most cases, but needs to be diagnosed in order to rule out a possible growth or more serious issue.
I don't feel any better. I was suprised the doctor did not precribe therapy, soft collar and he scheduled my follow up appt for 30 days latter. No instructions on should I change the bandages or care to see me sooner. This was a Dept Veterans Affairs operation that was contracted out due to backlog. I hope I get better with time. If they recommend this operation, I recommend you do not see my doctor due to lack of concern & or passion for his patiences.....
My good news is the new and higher soft collar I got. I sleep in it every night and it DOES make a difference. The burnig in my shoulder is less, the swelling too. Seems like it gives the neck a good break of movement at night. I advice everyone to give it a try. I have not had any good news from my surgon so far. He wants to do surgery and install a plate from the back onto my none-fused verdabrea. That will be my last resort.
When the lump came back, everynight when she was sleeping with me I began massaging the lump. The lump reduced in size to a marble and is not showing through the skin. I have no idea whether this is just pure luck but I took her to the vet who was as surprised as I was as this is quite an aggressive cancer. She is very happy,eating well and not on a special diet other than a supplement of mouse or bird when she can catch one !!
Is it possible that I have carried these neck lumps for so long that they have attached to my collar bone, and that’s why it hurts so bad? Maybe the size and pressing on the bone for 18 years has made it sore? I don’t know. So, some things are correct… others don’t play into it at all. But, it is an avenue that is going to be further explored. These lumps are so big today (under my ribs) I cannot sit up for more than 15 min before I’m in agony.
They both reecommend the the front of the neck with bone and fusion too. But neither of them would use my bone, they prefer a cadaver bone. Kind of scary... I guess the reason why is because people have a hard time healing in the hip if they use their own bone. Just an FYI...The 2nd opinion said I could go the Posterior route with no fusion which is called a Microdisectomy/Foraminotomy. This sounds better to me at the moment.
Hi, I have a swollen lymph node just above my collar bone, I am now 25 and at 18 I had one removed from the side of my neck which all came back clear. I am from the UK and over here no biopsy or scans seem to be done. When I went to my doc I was referred to a plastic surgeon because of the area, to have it removed.
they went in from the front, replaced 2 discs with synthetic or cadaver bone and secured them. He will wear a soft collar for about a month. He can't drive for a month. He has some shoulder pain , b ut otherwise is doing very well. He's been up and around since the evening of the surgery, but he isn't allowed to bend or lift anything over 10 pounds. This is a relatively common surgery that apparently usually has good results. Good luck if you hav it done.
A gnawing pain in your bones and muscles. This led to pain in my mid upper arm once in awhile. This spread then to my shoulder, collar bone and shoulder blade. And then to my elbow and wrist on occasion. With sometimes numbness in my pinky finger and the one next to it but that only happened twice. Now is constant and still excruciating if I move just right.
She also might have had osteosarcoma (bone cancer) as the xray of her paw (recent limping) indicated something eating away at the bone, and the only causes of that were bone cancer and/or Valley Fever. We were happy that she tested positive for Valley Fever since that is treatable with meds. However, I was playing with her and then had her lay down so I could return to work. 30 minutes later I noticed she was lifeless and determined she was dead.
Hi, I had a rotar cuff tear and had an arthoscopic surgery,8 weeks ago which revealed that I also had a spur,calcification on the base of my collar bone and damaged tendons in my bicep. So, I'm still in recovery and going to physical therapy which is very painfull now since i just started aggressive kind of therapy. I can't tell you the complete results of surgery now till i comlpletely heal.
