Cough, popped blood vessel after coughing, lump on collarbone. Normal blood test, CT scan. What could be this?

Cough for about 3 months and hard lump on end of right collarbone towards neck. Feels like it attached to bone. Had blood test, and ct scan. Blood test ok and ct scan showed nothing, but lump is clearly there and visible. I did not have this cough when I these tests done. Cough so hard I actually have had 2-3 seizures and popped blood vessel in right eye. If not cancer, what could it be?

Thanks for writing to us.
The hard lump on your collarbone is not likely to be related to the voilent bout of cough you had. Since the swelling is bony hard, it needs to be investigated- X-ray, MRI scan and FNAC to find out the type of the swelling.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. You can consult me again directly through my profile URL

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

A lump in that area may be ominous. Lymph node here has wide area of drainage...
Excision biopsy, as soon as possible, is the best option...

Sub-conjunctival haemorrhage is fairly common in cough...
But seizure - needs further assessment and assistance...

Sever cough with normal CT may mean asthma...
You need to see Pulmonologist /

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
