Thanks for posting your query.
The pain under the collar bone radiating to the breast and underarm with a poor circulation in 4th and 5th digits is suggestive of compression symptoms due to a mass- most likely lymph nodes in the axilla.
The cyst needs to be further investigated and removed for further treatment. An MRI of the chest will help in detecting the extent of spread of the cyst and cause of such compression symptoms.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
