What to do if I have a supraclavicular lymph node(left clavicle), why could it be swollen?

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more

Supraclavicular node: Well a normal person does not have a sc node that you can feel. If that is what you are truely feeling it shouldn't be there. Now it could be from an infection...Check your hand and arm over real good for cuts and scratches(do you have cats?). But than you really should get it checked out. Lung and breast cancer can easily spread to this area as can cancers of the mouth and throat. ...Read more

Reffered to ENT for long term swollen node on neck, bloods normal and now I have a swollen supraclavicular lymph node on the right side, worry?

Reffered to ENT for long term swollen node on neck, bloods normal and now I have a swollen supraclavicular lymph node on the right side, worry?

I am concerned: Supraclavicular lymph node enlargement is always concerning for possible underlying malignancy. Younger patients (under 40 years old) are more likely than not to prove not to have a malignant cause for the enlarged lymph nodes. The prognosis is not as good over the age of 40. In this age group the biopsy is more likely to show a malignancy(cancer). SEEhttp://bit.ly/1EA25af ...Read more
