Lump: It is probably an enlarged lymph node and likely benign. It could be a cyst of some kind, but that's less likely. Why was it xrayed twice? See your pediatrician. The baby should be examined for other "lumps" particularly in both axillae, groin, and opposite neck area. I would check the baby's CBC to make sure the white count wasn't ominous. ...Read more

Cancer is possible, specifically Hodgkin's lymphoma given your age, although enlarged lymph nodes in Hodgkins are more often painless. Other cancers would be less likely. Make an appointment to see your doctor so that it can be evaluated. Overall odds are that it is not going to be something serious. ...Read more

Hard, painless lump on left clavicle, approx 2 cm or so. Could it be cancer?

Hard, painless lump on left clavicle, approx 2 cm or so. Could it be cancer?

Not likely, but: A cancer of the clavicle bone would be highly unlikely. However, there are lymph nodes located just behind the mid point of the clavicle that might be enlarged and mistaken for the bone itself. Enlargement here would be significant. If this painless lump has been present for years without change likely insignificant. If it's just been noticed more recently, or getting larger, have it examined. ...Read more
