I can palpate my 2 supraclavicular lymph nodes. They aprx. 1.2 cm above my collar bone.  They are small and rubbery. Is it normal?

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. ...Read more

Not sure if I have a palpable supraclavicular lymph node or not. Should be able to feel tissue and tendons deep in hollow above collar bone?

Not sure if I have a palpable supraclavicular lymph node or not. Should be able to feel tissue and tendons deep in hollow above collar bone?

Probably normal: People can easily feel muscles, tendons, and other irregularities if they try, this site or elsewhere. Anything you have to work hard to decide if it's abnormal probably is not. Repeated poking can cause tenderness and swelling -- and what was previously normal becomes nonspecifically inflamed and that much harder to diagnose. If you remain concerned, see a doctor. In the meantime, hands off. ...Read more

Honest: This is not a case for HealthTap. You need a 1-1 evaluation by a neurologist and/or rheumatologist. The efforts of the available HealthTap MD's have been outstanding as far as they could go In fact, if you are near the Mayo or Lahey clinics, then you should go there for an inter-discipline evaluation. In absolutely no sense of criticism, you have been through what I call "too much:" and need important psychological support to help you work this thru. H. Robert Silverstein, MD, FACC ...Read more

What would cause an itchy, painful rash over collar bone?

What would cause an itchy, painful rash over collar bone?

Plant juice, maybe: There are several things that could cause such a rash, especially if the rash is only on one side, not both sides. Shingles is a possibility. I'd expect clusters of small blisters to develop in that case. A contact rash from a plant or chemical, either alone or combined with sun exposure could cause this. Even bacterial infections, like impetigo or fungal infections, like ringworm, are possible. ...Read more

Stress and strain: Lifting weights can cause stress and strain in the shoulder, especially where the collar bone (clavicle) connects to the wing bone (scapula) in an area called the acromioclavicular joint. If it hurts, stop the activity, put ice on it and rest for a few day before resuming activity. If it doesn't get better, an injection may help. Surgery is rarely required. ...Read more

Does a rotator cuff injury cause collar bone pain?

Does a rotator cuff injury cause collar bone pain?

Possibly: The rotator cuff is located beneath both the acromion and the clavicle.

Therefore, rotator cuff pain can be across the back, in the clavicle or down the arm. You should get it checked out. ...Read more

Several bug bite on back just behind shoulder. Large swollen lymph node on top of collar bone. Bites look to be better though. Cause?

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more
