How to distinguish between spuraclavicular lymph nodes and lymph nodes at base of neck. Are spuraclavicular nodes 1-2 inch above clavicle?

How to distinguish between spuraclavicular lymph nodes and lymph nodes at base of neck. Are spuraclavicular nodes 1-2 inch above clavicle?

By location: Supraclavicular (Not spuraclavicular) nodes are just above the clavicle. If you trace your finger from the base of your neck and right behind the clavicle going outwards towards the shoulder, you will feel a triangular space that ends when the clavicle bends backwards. Any lymph node in that area, will be Supraclavicular. Any lymph node at or above that base of neck is considered neck node. ...Read more

Enlarged : Enlarged lymph nodes or "lymphadenopathy" are very common. Lymph nodes are part of the immune system and enlarge with white blood cells to fight off infections when they detect a foriegn substance such as a virus or bacteria. (ever notice lumps in your neck with a sore throat?) usually these nodes shrink back down to normal size a few weeks after the infection is over, but can sometimes stay enlarged. No one is quite sure why this happens, but it's usually harmless. Other illnesses such as autoimmune disease or cancer can cause enlarged lymph nodes, but often multiple nodes are involved, they can get very large, keep growing instead of shrinking and are associated with other symptoms such as fever, chills, weight loss, rash, etc. Presuming that you have no other symptoms besides this noticeable but unchanging node, odds of it being anything dangerous are extremely low. Reasons to see your doctor would include an enlarging node, more noticeable nodes appearing, any other signs of illness or if it concerns you and you just want it checked out. ...Read more

The base of my neck where the sternocliedomastoid connects to clavicle area hurts to the touch. What could be the cause?

The base of my neck where the sternocliedomastoid connects to clavicle area hurts to the touch. What could be the cause?

Muscle pain: The most likely cause is a muscle strain. The sternocleidomastoid functions in neck rotation, so a strain can result from overuse of the neck muscles or abnormal neck positioning. Another cause could be infection of the overlying skin and or muscle itself. This would be associated with redness and warmth in the area. Treat initially with ice, anti-inflammatories, rest. See a doctor if not better ...Read more

What causes fluid retention in the space between the clavicle and neck?  My endo says its fat but it comes & goes. I'm 127# and 5'4". Ddx?

I agree with your: Endocrinologist. You have ideal body weight and if u have no other issues such as hypertension, diabetes and elevated lipids, this fatty tissue is benign. This is not fluid and this area is not a common location for fluid collection. People with cushing's (elevated adrenal steroids) develop 'buffalo hump' where swelling is in the upper back of the area you're describing. Take care! ...Read more
