Besides breast cancer/lymphoma, what else causes a hard, immovable, non-tender lump under collarbone in area of infraclavicular node on left side? Thx

If you are over 40, I would recommend you should be having annual mammography, regardless of whether you have an infraclavicular mass. Pay attention to this mass, and you should try to see your physician regarding this. ...Read more

How can I tell if I feel a lump under my collarbone near the sternum? Could I be feeling a bone or muscle? What does a lump feel like? No symptoms

Needs more info: Confused about your question. Can you feel a lump or not. You should be able to feel your collarbone and follow it all the way to the end. Bone feels hard. You may feel a lymph node under your collarbone but that would be movable. Feels almost like a small soft marble. Should not be tender to touch. If the lump enlarges over weeks or months or becomes tender it needs to be checked out. ...Read more
