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

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

Could hormonal changes in a woman cause a swollen lymph node in left side of chest (above breast, below collar bone) for 2 days now? No fever yet.

NO

Fever
This should not be related to a hormonal problem. Usually when a lymph node (if that is what it is) enlarges as a response to infection or inflammation of which there can be many causes. It may not be a lymph node. It could be a cyst or an early abcess. If it persists, it needs to be checked by a doctor

It means that your body is fighting off an infection. If it doesn't resolve, continues to grow, or becomes painful, see your doctor.

Reactive

The vast majority of swollen lymph nodes "react" to viral infections. This is their job description. They enlarge to help fight the infection. It it's larger than a marble or has been their for more than 2 weeks, have your doctor take a look at it.
