Possibly: Any bump near the clavicle especially in the supraclavicular fossa can be lymph node disease. This can be related to abdominal disease if the lump is in the right side of the lower neck. If it is only in the skin over the clavicle it can represent a skin cyst or an osteomoa of the lateral clavicle.
