Does a rotator cuff injury cause collar bone pain?

Possibly: The rotator cuff is located beneath both the acromion and the clavicle. The body has a tough time deciding where the pain is because of the low density of nerve fibers and organs in the area. Therefore rotator cuff pain can be across the back, in the clavicle or down the arm. You should get it checked out. ...Read more

Do you lift weights?: If you lift weights (benchpress), that might be the culprit. The muscles and ligaments that attach to the collarbone are shown in the diagram. If your pain is at one of these places, you likely have a strain from lifting. If you've fallen on your outstretched arm, the same thing can happen. Also, ask your doctor about osteonecrosis (dying bone due to lack of blood supply). Hope that helps! ...Read more

If a lipoma grows or becomes painful, an ultrasound or biopsy might be needed. ...Read more

I got a mole near my collar bone and I want it removed without it leaving any marks/scarring is this possible?

I got a mole near my collar bone and I want it removed without it leaving any marks/scarring is this possible?

No: A nevus (aka mole) is a common and usually harmless lesion. Removal requires either cutting it out with a scalpel and closing skin with suture or removal by some destructive technique (laser, dermabasion, cautery, etc). All techniques will result in some form of scarring that will leave a visible mark. If the mole has any suspicious features for cancer, a sample should be sent to a pathologist. ...Read more

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

When I touch the back of my neck/head, shoulders and my collar bone it hurts, like it's bruised. No injuries. It just started last night?

Collar bone pain: Often this is found with acromioclavicular disorders. The middle age and older set frequently get arthritis of the "ac" joint. But younger folks more often get sprains. Without trauma, a common cause is from overuse. Too much tennis, push-ups, or especially weight lifting can create such high loads that soreness and inflammation can develope - also called distal clavicle osteolysis. ...Read more

I'm a 37yr old female with almost all the symptoms of hypothyroidism but I have also had a lump above my left collar bone for about 3mths?

Get evaluation!: There are several causes for hypothyroidism, including causes that cause the gland to grow quite large. You would do well to consult an endocrinologist. A doctor that studies endocrine system including thyroid. This Could be goiter, a cyst, or something more insidious. Only a careful history and examination and blood tests and perhaps imaging studies of thyroid gland will tell. Don't delay!! ...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?

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

Am I suppose to be able to grab something near my collar bone below Adams apple? It's soft and tender. Tender to touch. Ate sharp foods yester.

Varies: There are some structures in the area you are discribing including the thyroid cartilage, the thyroid itself, and the carotid tubercle. But if something is swollen, tender, warm, painful, or just clearly different than your baseline; I would definitely be checked. If nothing else it can be reassuring. ...Read more

I broke my collar bone 6 years ago, and I never had surgery. It significantly shortened the length between my sternum and shoulder (1 inch).?

I broke my collar bone 6 years ago, and I never had surgery. It significantly shortened the length between my sternum and shoulder (1 inch).?

Clavicle malunion: When the clavicle heals in a shortened position, it affects the position of the scapula (termed pseudo-winging), thus affecting shoulder function. If the deformity is "significant", corrective osteotomy (re-break bone) may be needed with a bone graft inserted between the cut ends. The goal is to restore the clavicle to the correct length. Consult with a shoulder specialist who has experience. ...Read more
