lump above right collarbone
 
Hi,

I've got a small lump just above my right collarbone. it's been there for almost half a year now - at first i thought it was a pimple and tried squeezing it and some pus came out. but now it's really beginning to worry me (especially after i read some of the posts here related to lumps and lymphoma).

could anyone please offer some advice? :(

(fyi, i'm 22)

Lymph nodes do not have pus. It sounds like a fatty cyst. In any case, go and have it checked, but it sounds strictly local.it must be on the skin if you could squeeze it. Lymph nodes in that area are well under the skin. Good luck, Sera

Thanks for your reply, Sera.

forget to add: i have another lump on my groin. this one seems deeper and bigger than the one on my neck, and it hurts when squeezed. Could this one (hopefully) be just another fatty cyst too?

In any case I am going to see a doctor in two weeks' time - hope all this is nothing serious....
