Left Supraclavicular Lymph Node
Cannot tell: A large supraclavicular node may be due to many different things, and whether it needs to be biopsied depends on whether "hard" means stony hard, whether it is fixed to underlying tissues, tender, continuing to enlarge, how long it has been there and many other things will influence decision-making.

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.

If not, for sure bring it to your doctor's attention. ...Read more

Lump on left breast for 4 weeks - feels on surface, not "in" breast. No visible skin changes, or changes to breast shape. Also enlarged left supraclavicular lymph node. Only 23 - is cancer possible?
Not likely: Lymph nodes which enlarge are not necessarily, and in fact rarely infected, but are responding to a regional inflammation by fighting whatever is producing the inflammation. Lymph nodes can become infected, just like any other area of the body, but if they are it is unlikely that the size will go down. ...Read more
