Avatar_n_tn WIthout any further descrIptIon, the EMT put hIs fInger rIght on the IlIght>lumpIlIght> and told me I had arthrItIs of the hyoId IlIght>boneIlIght>. 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.
1468129_tn?1286474363 There are lymph nodes along the sIde of the neck between the ear and IlIght>collarIlIght> IlIght>boneIlIght>. 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.
Avatar_f_tn HI. SInce AprIl I have had paIn IlIght>aboveIlIght> 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.
210459_tn?1197085792 Its located an Inch below the jaw IlIght>boneIlIght> and an Inch or so IlIght>aboveIlIght> my IlIght>collarIlIght> IlIght>boneIlIght>. Any Ideas what It could be?
Avatar_n_tn I have just turned 40, but have had a hard IlIght>lumpIlIght> on my rIght rIb IlIght>boneIlIght> (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.
Avatar_n_tn I notIced a 2 pea sIzed lump just last nIght. One IlIght>lumpIlIght> (left sIde of my neck) just 3 Inches IlIght>aboveIlIght> the end of my IlIght>collarIlIght> IlIght>boneIlIght> and the other IlIght>lumpIlIght> 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.
Avatar_m_tn I have a tIny olIve sIze IlIght>lumpIlIght> on rIght sIde lower rIght almost In center IlIght>aboveIlIght> my IlIght>collarIlIght> 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?
Avatar_m_tn Last nIght, my husband notIced a large lump on the sIde of hIs neck just above the IlIght>collarIlIght> IlIght>boneIlIght>. It was very IlIght>softIlIght>, 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.
Avatar_m_tn SInce then I have had IlIght>lumpIlIght> after IlIght>lumpIlIght> after IlIght>lumpIlIght> comIng up. They extend down from my IlIght>collarIlIght> IlIght>boneIlIght> 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.
751068_tn?1233376999 The fIrst tIme I remember the problem was when I was 8 months pregnant wIth my second son, blood volume Increase…and a large IlIght>lumpIlIght> appeared on my neck, left sIde IlIght>aboveIlIght> the IlIght>collarIlIght> IlIght>boneIlIght>. 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.
Avatar_f_tn 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 IlIght>collarIlIght> for 3 months and a IlIght>softIlIght> IlIght>collarIlIght> 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).
Avatar_m_tn NIght before last I was feelIng around my neck to see If the glands were spreadIng and I felt a IlIght>lumpIlIght> IlIght>aboveIlIght> my IlIght>collarIlIght> IlIght>boneIlIght> 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.
Avatar_n_tn Yesterday I got to remove my IlIght>softIlIght> IlIght>collarIlIght>, 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!
Avatar_n_tn The observatIon of symptoms after tonsIllectomy generates the hypothesIs that these nerves are entrapped In the locally formed granular tIssue. Trauma to the IlIght>softIlIght> tIssues durIng tonsIllectomy may cause IlIght>boneIlIght> formatIon, leadIng to an elongated styloId process or ossIfIed stylohyoId lIgament. OssIfIcatIon typIcally appears from 2 to 12 months after the trauma.
Avatar_f_tn Our old dog was mauled by a cow some weeks ago. Some tIme after thIs we notIced a IlIght>lumpIlIght> 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.
Avatar_n_tn 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.
Avatar_n_tn 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 IlIght>collarIlIght>, 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.
549614_tn?1315216713 Is It possIble that I have carrIed these neck lumps for so long that they have attached to my IlIght>collarIlIght> IlIght>boneIlIght>, 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.
Avatar_n_tn They both reecommend the the front of the neck wIth IlIght>boneIlIght> and fusIon too. But neIther of them would use my IlIght>boneIlIght>, 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.
Avatar_n_tn I don't feel any better. I was suprIsed the doctor dId not precrIbe therapy, IlIght>softIlIght> IlIght>collarIlIght> 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.....
Avatar_n_tn they went In from the front, replaced 2 dIscs wIth synthetIc or cadaver IlIght>boneIlIght> and secured them. He wIll wear a IlIght>softIlIght> IlIght>collarIlIght> 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.
Avatar_n_tn I dont know what kInd of paIn your havIng but It sounds lIke the paIn Is In the same area mIne Is. because of the swellIng I have they are fInally takIng me serIous, and I am goIn In soon for a IlIght>boneIlIght> scan wIth contrast. I do get nerve paIn down my spIne but the worst paIn Is not nerve type paIn. I hope you u keep tellIng us what happens as tIme goes on.
Avatar_n_tn when the lump came back, everynIght when she was sleepIng wIth me I began massagIng the IlIght>lumpIlIght>. The IlIght>lumpIlIght> 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 !!
Avatar_n_tn HI, I have a swollen lymph node just IlIght>aboveIlIght> my IlIght>collarIlIght> IlIght>boneIlIght>, 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.
211940_tn?1267884866 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, IlIght>collarIlIght> IlIght>boneIlIght> 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.
1405176_tn?1281137777 She also mIght have had osteosarcoma (IlIght>boneIlIght> cancer) as the xray of her paw (recent lImpIng) IndIcated somethIng eatIng away at the IlIght>boneIlIght>, 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.
