Sounds like an enl--: Arged lymph node, from either an infection in the mouth, tonsils, tongue area; thyroid; chest infections or lesions in the lung. See your pcp to get evaluated with labs. Removal of the ln for biopsy would be best way to get the correct diagnosis.

Lump on left side of collar bone causes?

Nonspecific: Unfortunately this is an extremely nonspecific description. A soft fatty lump may be a simple lipoma, which is benign and does not require treatment. If you have had prior fracture of the collar bone, you may be feeling a bony callus or a residual deformity from the fracture. If the lump is tender or has unusual coloration or has been rapidly changing in size, then you need evaluation.
