Lymph node: What you felt is quite likely a lymph node. From the sound of it, it does not appear to be of concern. Many people have lymph nodes that they feel, and it does not mean anything cancerous. The fact that it can be moved around, and is smooth are all good signs. If you still are concerned, have your doctor do an exam. Best wishes. ...Read more

I get a sharp pain on my right side in the collarbone area between my neck and shoulder. It's also sore to the touch and recurring. What could this be?

Consider rib pain: My first guess is that your 1st rib on the right side is out of alignment. Your description of the pain and location certainly match this. An adjustment from a chiropractor or doctor of osteopathy (D.O.) who performs manipulative medicine can fix this problem. Could also consider it to be a transient muscle spasm. ...Read more

Swollen bump under chin to left, tender left breast, sore left nipple with cracks, tingling under left collarbone to nipple cause itch. Is it all related?

Swollen bump under chin to left, tender left breast, sore left nipple with cracks, tingling under left collarbone to nipple cause itch. Is it all related?

Probably unrelated: The lump under the chin could be an enlarged lymph node or swollen salivary gland and if it doesn't recede within a week or if it increases in size or new lumps appear, get examined by an ENT specialist. Dryness and cracks in a nipple aren't unusual but that and the tingling in the chest appears to be separate issues. Left breast tissue may be congested and hormone related but get checked for it. ...Read more

I'm worried about my collarbone. I think it may be protruding on the right hand side & I'm experiencing some. Pain. It's tender to touch & feels achy.?

See an Orthopedist: Got to your family doctor and have him decide if you need to see an orthopedic surgeon. This may be related to an injury, dislocation, arthritis, or even infection. Do not tamper with it. Take tylenol (acetaminophen) for now and leave it alone. Stay off physical activity using that side of the upper body for some time to allow it to heal on its own, if it can. ...Read more
