I had swollen lymph nodes a long time ago and when I got rid of them the area between my neck and left shoulder got swollen it wasn't even painful its?
How?: I don't understand "when I got rid of them" since I don't know of any way to reduce lymph swelling (until the disease process has been controlled or faded away by itself as in the case of a viral infection) without medication. Is the swelling still present? If it has been present for more than a couple of weeks or getting worse, better consult your doctor. Read more

How to distinguish between spuraclavicular lymph nodes and lymph nodes at base of neck. Are spuraclavicular nodes 1-2 inch above clavicle?
By location: Supraclavicular (Not spuraclavicular) nodes are just above the clavicle. If you trace your finger from the base of your neck and right behind the clavicle going outwards towards the shoulder, you will feel a triangular space that ends when the clavicle bends backwards. Any lymph node in that area, will be Supraclavicular. Any lymph node at or above that base of neck is considered neck node. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
