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

I have 2 lumps, both sides of my upper chest 2 in. Below the collar bones. No symptoms of cancer, tender to touch. Doc said it was ligament strain.?
Unusual: It is unusual that ligament strain would result in lumps. The other information that I would want to know is if you are male vs female. In females, I would make sure of a recent breast examination, as cysts can occur. The other possibility are lipomas, which are soft deposits of fat within the skin tissues. Lipomas are very common and usually are not cancerous. ...Read more

Lymph glands: Generalized enlargement of lymph nodes are seen in infectious mononucleosis, malignant blood dyscrasias and other infections. I'm not sure that they would be found on the rib cage itself or on the shin-bone. I recommend an evaluation by a hematologist or an infectious disease specialist. A lymph node biopsy as well as other tests may be advised by the specialist. ...Read more

I had surgery to remove a mass out of my chest in 2005, I can still feel my sternum move and pop. Is this normal?

Rarely this can be due to chronic infection. Either way you need to see your surgeon. He or she will determine the extent of the problem and discuss treatment options, risks and benefits ...Read more
