Hard bone under clavicle, painless lump. Lymph nodes?
I have a hard bone like lump under my clavical close to sternum. The lump is painless and doesn t move. I found the lump a few weeks ago. I have seen 2 physicians one suggested the lump was a cyst and referred me to a surgeon. The surgeon believes this lump is bone. Are there lymph nodes in the described area? Do I have reason to be concerned?
Good morning. Have you noticed any weight loss? You need to be concerned. Yes there are lymph nodes in this are that is why, You should see orthopedic surgeon. The surgeon will re examine you and rule out other pathologies like tumors of clavicle etc
