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

I have a small pea size lump on my left collar bone, it moves & is painful also large lump on left wrist both appeared at same time. What are these?

Ganglion cysts: Most likely they are ganglion cysts. It is pretty common to get one at your wrist. As far as collar bone goes, it depends on where it is located. If it is more towards your shoulder at the ac joint then it is more likely to be a small ganglion. Because the rest of the collarbone does not have any joints in it, it would be more rare for it to come up there. I would have it checked out by ortho. ...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

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?

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

Movable small lump on collar bone. Normal lymph node or a sign of something?

Probably normal: May be a small lymph node reacting to some local inflammation, but without examining it impossible to be sure. The location, the fact that it is mobile, and the absence of other symptoms suggests this is nothing to worry about, but should it get larger, hard to the touch, fixed to underlying tissue, other symptoms develop, more appear, it becomes tender and painful, see a doctor. ...Read more
