Diagnosis is costochondritis but I have no pain. Lump starts at underside of collar bone. Also several harder lymphnodes in my groin, jaw, ear areas?

COSTOCHONDRITIS IS: Caused by virus mostly. As a part of viral illness, there can be lymph node enlargement at different parts of the body. We have groups of lymph nodes allover our body, like check points to catch bacteria/viruses, they get swollen, kills the germs and over time comes back to their normal small, non-palpable size. Unless you have any other issues (e.g. Unprotected sex/std), you will be ok. ...Read more

Lump on left side of collar bone causes?

Lump on left side of collar bone causes?

Nonspecific: Unfortunately this is an extremely nonspecific description. A soft fatty lump may be a simple lipoma, which is benign and does not require treatment. If you have had prior fracture of the collar bone, you may be feeling a bony callus or a residual deformity from the fracture. If the lump is tender or has unusual coloration or has been rapidly changing in size, then you need evaluation. ...Read more

Sorry but what does it mean by a soft tissue problem? I have read a lot about having a lump on the collar bone I do not know if it is serious?

Can mean many things: Soft tissue is a word that includes a wide variety of tissue including fat, muscle and connective tissue. It depends on whether the lump is mobile or fixed under the skin and or over the bone, if is soft or hard. You need an experienced physician to feel it and let you know. Ultrasound can help sometimes. ...Read more

I have found a small lump above my right collar bone. It feels like fatty tissue and is moveable. It is also painful to touch. Should I seek help.

Yes: If it is bothering you I would have it surgically removed. It is an easy quick outpatient procedure. Likely this is a fatty lump called a lipoma but very slight risk of something more serious such as an enlarged lymph node. ...Read more

About a week ago i noticed this lump on my left collar bone. It's weird shaped, hard & starts just above the bone but is mainly on it. Never broken it?

Swollen gland: Likely what you are describing is something called lymphadenopathy, which is swelling and inflammation of lymph nodes. This can lead to pain and can be aggravated by movement, depending on the location of the swollen lymph node. Generally speaking, most lymphadenopathy is caused by infectious processes. This could be viral or bacterial. Other causes can be discussed with your doctor. ...Read more

Hard lumps in upper chest and on and under my collar bone, what could it be?

Hard to say: This is a bit unusual. Are they tender or red or very itchy? Certain rashes can seem to be like lumps. If they have been there a long time, they are probably nothing to worry about. However, if new, and if you have any other symptoms like fever, tiredness, or lumps under your armpits, you should probably be seen by someone who can examine them and your whole body to see what is going on. ...Read more

Lymph node?: Most likely a lymph node, which houses immune cells. Some of these permanently reside in the node and others go in and out. In the context of infection, there would be an influx of white cells as the overall immune response adjusts. However, rarely, a lymph node enlarges due to an influx in cancer cells. For this reason, if it persists, it is worth seeing a physician and completing a work up. ...Read more

I have a small pea size to marble size squishy lump on my collar bone that moves around. Should it be checked?

I have a small pea size to marble size squishy lump on my collar bone that moves around. Should it be checked?

Yes: Don't be alarmed-I would recommend you make an appointment to see your regular doctor about the lump. Most lumps do not represent a serious disease or condition, but in some cases they might be something more concerning. It would be very easy for your primary care doctor to check out the lump and make sure it is nothing dangerous or how to best evaluate and treat the lump. ...Read more

Go see a doctor.: The bump concerns me, as that sounds like it could be a lymph node underneath the collarbone. A node in this area could spark some testing, so a prompt visit to the doctor would be wise. ...Read more

R/O DVT ER EVAL!: Although it is unusual you can have DVT(deep venous thrombosis ) = blood clot in this area. Or an aneurysm(dilated blood vessel) in either case I would recommend prompt ER evaluation for Ultrasound or MRA of the area to define the problem. Since the mass feels pusatile , less likely a lymph node or lipoma. Seek ER evaluation promptly! You will also need a full clotting work up. ...Read more
