Specializes in Cardiology

Merits evaluation: Although lymph nodes above the clavicles are usually not prominent enough to be felt, they are not necessarily abnormal. However, a careful exam, possibly including chest X-rays, would be appropriate. Disease in the head and neck, throat, lungs and blood can cause enlarged supraclavicular lymph nodes. Disease can include cancer, infections and autoimmune disease.

Lymph nodes: They may be associated with local infections or could be associated with something else I would suggest you see your physician to get a definitive diagnosis
