The normal blood may mean it is not showing in the blood. It may be a benign mass and it may be biopsied to be certain by various techniques however normal blood and urine tests may not be enough. Normal U/S in the axilla is different from under the collarbone where the mass is. It may be a fat mass but see a surgeon for biopsy.
