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

Shoulder clavicle ligaments got separated in a car accident 3 mnt ago.  Left shoulder juts out now.Also aches wen it's cold n I carry stuff wit d arm?

AC separation: Type 1-3 ac separations are typically treated without surgery. A type 3 indicates you tore the capsule and cc ligaments. If you walk thru most football or hockey locker rooms alot of players have this. A type 5 indicates the clavicle has pierced thru the trapezial fascia. These are generally fixed but can carry a high failure rate of 20%. I would see a shoulder specialist to identify yours. ...Read more

My clavicle bone is protruding outward & sore, I've had this for years, the pain comes & goes, but bone is getting biggger, could this be bone cancer?

My clavicle bone is protruding outward & sore, I've had this for years, the pain comes & goes, but bone is getting biggger, could this be bone cancer?

Sounds worrisome: I wouldn't delay seeing a local doctor with those symptoms. It could be an old fracture evolving (if you had an injury), but less likely since it has been for years. There are both benign (non-cancerous) bone tumors and cancerous bone tumors (various bone sarcomas). You need a simple X-ray of the clavicle area and to be evaluated by an orthospedic surgeon or sports medicine specialist. ...Read more

Lump on left clavicle bone near my throat not sore and why is this ?

Lump on left clavicle bone near my throat not sore and why is this ?

Hard to say: Hard to say. The clavicle articulates with the sternum medially. Sometimes the sternoclvicular joint can beome quite enlarged, often from an injury or an arthritic condition. This might be what you are describing. An exam and possibly an xray can usually determine the cause. Thank you for your question. ...Read more
