What does a lump under collar bone indicate? - Online Doctor Chats
I have a hard lump under my coller bone right side, no pain
The hard lump can be a lymph node
I noticed it a week ago but still hasn't gone away
How hard is it?
Feels like bone
Left side don't have anything
A bony hard lymph node is not a good sign
You need to get examined and also tested for the cause of it
I'm also a smoker
What kind of test
Why the abdomen?
If it is lymphnode then it may be draining an area mostly the gut
Thats the area they drain
So tests will involve basic blood tests and scanning of abdomen to start with
If something comes back positive then the tests can be taken further
the lymph node can be removed and biopsied
Which blood test...cmp or which
complete blood count
Since it may just be a manifestation of some infection somewhere
Can I know your age?
27 is too early for something ominous
But still be on the safer side
Bony hard consistency does not sound good
Is it growing or coming down?
Im a nurse so I will have labs done in the morning, growing
Do you have any question?
Also my left upper abdomen has been hurting but just started yesterday
Where exactly is the pain?
Right under my ribs
Spleen usually hrts when it is cleaning the blood
Drink cleaner water
so as to avoid git infections
where is the swelling?
Right under my ribs left upper quad.
It may be swollen spleen
So we will need to do tests to find the cause of splenomegaly
The cause be infection
It will come up in cbc
Ok thank you
There can be other causes
But both symptoms present at the same time suggest towards infection of blood
Now tyhe infection can be of many types
more frequent being viral but virals usually have fever
so cbc will point towards the type of infection
then further tests can be taken
Do you have any question?
No fever and will get test done
Please ask if you have any dounbts
