If two doctors have said a swallon gland on my left collar bone does not require medical action should I still b worried due to area?

Usually NOT. Lymph nodes in that area are very common. The thing you should remember is that you should keep an eye on it. Watch to see if it is getting larger and more importantly feel the area to see if more nodes are coming out. Usually single nodes like you have go down and disappear on their own. But if it enlarges or multiplies definitly seek medical help. Read more...

2 lymph nodes above collar bone. Had an US doc said they are reactive and max 9mm. Should I still push for biopsy? I don't have any symptoms of infec.

Listen to doc. What would be gained by pushing for biopsy? You may watch and wait. You may feel the nodes every couple of weeks, if the lymph glands double in size, become painful, ulcerate, or other nodes become enlarged, or you develop fever, you should consult your doctor again, as it would be time for biopsy then. Wish you good health! For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.
