Growth in collarbone, pain stiffness in chest, tumor, bad posture. Possible cure?

I have a weird growth under my collarbone it shows mostly when I push my chest out. Both my collarbones crack time to time and iv mostly felt pain or stiffness in my shoulders mostly when I wake up. I m scared it might be a tumor .. It doesn t move isn t soft but not hard either. There s no pain on my collarbone. It s seemed to be growing ang getting worse but I must add my posture is not the best. If I hold both my arms out and swing them back and forth one direction it locks up I can feel weird movement the other makes pop sounds. That s the are with the bump on the collarbone the other arm only pops if I swing forward and grab with the othe and pull down. I also notice that one collarbone looks like its sticking out on top of my shoulder. If there s any email I could reach you at to send you pictures that be great there s no pain once I get up and move around though. But if I sit down or lean I get very stiff.

Thanks for coming to HCM. Please contact your local doctor who will do good physical examination to assess the lump near collar bone. It is difficult to predict based on your description since that area has several structures from where a growth might happen. Your doctor might take biopsy of the growth and might ask to do ultrasound/CT scan to confirm the source/origin of growth.
Wish you good health!
