The area under my right collar bone is numb and slightly swollen, nothing hurts but it's been this way for 3 days with no improvement I'm 17?

The area under my right collar bone is numb and slightly swollen, nothing hurts but it's been this way for 3 days with no improvement I'm 17?

Watchit awhile: It is too early to tell if there is something real going on under your collar bone. You may have bumped into something unknowingly. So give it one or two weeks to evolve...it will likely go away if it is nothing serious. If it gets bigger over 2 weeks, then you will need medical examination to check it out, and get tests like X-rays which can look deeper under the skin. I wouldn't worry rite now. ...Read more

Consider getting it checked now, so your doctor can check for the cause. When the cause is found and treated the lymph node goes down over the next several weeks. If it stays enlarged, other tests may need to be done ...Read more
