Post Could a lump on collar bone be Lymphoma?

I have a lump on my right clavicle n it feels like it is part of my bone. But it is much larger than my left one. It doesn't hurt and can't move. I also Have several swollen lymph nodes through out my body. The only other large one is behind my right ear n its about the same size as the collar bone lump. (size of a marble) So what could this bump on my collar bone be and should I go to the doctors for it? Thanks

Re: Could a lump on collar bone be Lymphoma?

I was wondering if you ever found out about the lump on your clavical? I recently found one myself (on my left clavical), about half an inch away from my throat. I plan on getting it checked but i need a new dr first. I also have a large lump on the back of my wrist, about an inch around and half an inch tall my dr says it's a ganglion cyst that needs surgical removal, but i don't need surgery yet even though i've had it for 6 months. Plus, I have 3 small, pea-sized cysts on the inside of my left foot. I hope everything works out for you!

If you have persistent swollen lymph nodes and a lump that worries you, I'd suggest seeing a doc. Do you have a GP? Better to get it checked and have peace of mind - it may not be cancer either. If it does need attention, then your visit to the doc will get it cared for.

Re: Could a lump on collar bone be Lymphoma?

I had a very similar thing happen to me. I was feeling a little discomfort in my upper right chest and when I reached up I noticed a very large bone hard mass about 2 inches under my collar bone. I went online and started reading and in about two hours I had myself convinced that it was my lymph node that was swollen up and that it was a certain indicator of a cancer run rampant. I stayed up all night crying. I'm a mother of two and I was in a panic that I was getting ready to leave them motherless. The next day I RUSHED to the doctor and she told me that I had actually dislocated my rib and that "mass" I was feeling was my bone where it is attached to the cartilage. Then I remembered a week or so ago bending over the bathtub and feeling a pain in that area where I had been putting pressure. So apparently it is not that hard to do. The point of my story is that when I was looking things up the ONLY possible cause of this "lump" was the worst possible thing it could be. So if you find a lump like this, go to the doctor right away. You will feel so much better once you get an answer. But don't assume that it is cancer. I wasted two days in a dead panic over nothing.
