Lump in neck above collarbone

Common Questions and Answers about Lump in neck above collarbone


Avatar m tn Hello, I have a lump above the collarbone on the right side of my neck 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.
Avatar m tn 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 neck 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.
Avatar n tn Sorry, I have 2 lumps - one above my collarbone (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.
Avatar m tn Yesterday my wife came and started massaging my shoulders and she felt a hard lump on the lower left side of my neck about 2 inches above my collarbone. 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.
210459 tn?1197085792 I have had a lump in my neck 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.
Avatar n tn In addition to this, I found a small lump in my neck (pea size, maybe smaller), around 2-3 inches above my collarbone, near the centre of the neck, 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.
1429890 tn?1312389607 I noticed on the left side of my neck above my collarbone 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?
Avatar n tn Is it that your neck 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.
14178828 tn?1433263772 I figured maybe I slept on it wrong or pulled a muscle or something, until I touched it and felt a round mass about the size of a grape. It is located on the right side maybe 1/2 an inch or more above my collarbone - kind of where the neck meets the shoulder area. The lump is movable as I'm able to move it around and it feels kinda soft. Like not totally hard but not super squishy/soft either. You can't really see it when looking unless lean my head to the left and it very slightly pokes out.
Avatar m tn I am 36 yrs old male and just started having pain in my lower neck down the centre just above my collarbone. I am having to breath deeply when the pain comes on. There is no lump but very tender. Could it be a thyroid problem?
Avatar m tn 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 neck. One above 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.
Avatar n tn My doctor said the lymph nodes in my neck are palpable, but they are not growing and still very small. I have a large lump in my armpit as well, but a saw a surgeon and she felt that it was nothing to worry about.
Avatar n tn It is slightly offset to the right but mainly in the front and at the base of my neck. Just above my collarbone. 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?
Avatar n tn Hold the mirror so that you can see the area of your neck just below the Adam's apple and right above the collarbone. 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.
Avatar n tn My wife, a nursing mother, has a small lump on her neck, above right collarbone 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?
Avatar n tn In November I found a lump the size of a pea in my neck. 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). name it they did it and couldn't figure out what that lump was.
Avatar f tn I also had a cat scan done because of an inflammation that I have above my collarbone. Severe enough to make my neck 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.
Avatar f tn Hi, went to doc's today about lump on neck just above collar bone and another higher up on other side of neck. 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.
Avatar n tn I can't stand for a shirt to touch me from my collarbone 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.
Avatar f tn 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 above the breast. My doctor diagnose me with "Costochondritis" Here is a website to check the symtoms out. 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.
Avatar n tn (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 above my collarbone, 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.
Avatar n tn I discovered a small movable painless lump (pea sized) on my neck (under the skin) on the left side above right above my collarbone (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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.

Avatar n tn 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 neck and shooting pain in right side neck 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.
Avatar n tn The lymph node in my neck 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.
192055 tn?1263559137 When he first cut me open, the doc found the muscle just floating around (The muscle that held my joint together. He drilled a hole in my collarbone...took one of my neck muscles and wrapped it around my collarbone and rib to hold it in place, to make my SC joint a stable joint. The surgery went well- as in it IS a stable joint.... ALTHOUGH I am having some complications. I have to go back to the doctor to get some xrays and mri's done... I have some clicking in my SC joint.
Avatar n tn 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!
Avatar f tn 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.
