Typical for mono: This sounds normal for infectious mononucleosis. Enlarged lymph nodes can occur all over the body, and above the collarbone (the supraclavicular fossa, in medical terminology) is a common site. That said, mono is pretty uncommon above age 25. Discuss with your doctor if any doubt about the diagnosis.
