For months, I’ve had a worsening feeling of a lump or construction in my rt neck above collarbone; worst when lying down. Recent Thyroid US was clear. I’m concerned about possible Lymphoma or other conditions involving the Supraclavicular node.

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor and discuss if you may be depressed. Counter-intuitive as it may seem, exercise may help. Start with low intensity exercise such as walking and gradually increase the intensity at tolerated.
Wish you good health! ...Read more

You might want to contact a neurologist or a pain management specialist for further evaluation and possible nerve block. Or the evaluation might be helpful for another source for the pain. ...Read more

Sternoclavicular : Joint can become inflamed or if you are older arthritic. It can feel like there is pressure on your trachea but in reality unless you had a major trauma where you fell on your shoulder or chest and the joint dislocated into your chest it is probably just inflamed.

Dislocated collar bone causes lots of discomfort up right side of neck to lower part of skull?

Dislocated collar bone causes lots of discomfort up right side of neck to lower part of skull?

See a doctor.: The muscles that attach to the collarbone, as well as neck and skull, can be stretched and become painful if the collarbone is truly dislocated. It takes a lot of force to cause this kind of bony dislocation, and this type of dislocation needs to be reduced (repositioned properly) by a doctor for correct healing and to ease pain. Please see a doctor for evaluation and treatment. ...Read more

I get a sharp pain on my right side in the collarbone area between my neck and shoulder. It's also sore to the touch and recurring. What could this be?

Consider rib pain: My first guess is that your 1st rib on the right side is out of alignment. Your description of the pain and location certainly match this. An adjustment from a chiropractor or doctor of osteopathy (D.O.) who performs manipulative medicine can fix this problem. Could also consider it to be a transient muscle spasm. ...Read more

Hard cartilage like lumpin lower sacrum about 2cm in size, 7 groin lymph nodes, 2 neck with 1in collarbone since Dec, doctor won't send me for tests?

Lumps/enlarged nodes: An xray might help with the lump you feel on your sacrum. Groin nodes are always the largest ones we feel because that area just isn't clean & the nodes are constantly handling a lot of bacterial invaders. Neck nodes are also usually easy to feel, so don't panic. Your nodes may be normal, especially if they move easily. Worrisome symptoms include night sweats, fevers, unexplained weight loss. ...Read more

Trapezius: Your trapezius muscle runs well down your back and up into your neck. Because it makes up part of the musculature around your rib cage, it can get strained from coughing. This may cause you pain anywhere along the muscle including all the way up to where it inserts at the base of your skull in the back. ...Read more
