Large, hard lump above right collarbone. History of lymph nodes. Serious symptoms?

I found a very hard lump, maybe the size of a golf ball above my right collarbone. I m only 24 years old and I hardly ever get sick. I did get a lymph node below my ear checked out a couple years ago that swelled up and never went back down but the doctor said it was probably nothing since it never changed in size. Now I found this and it has me completely worried. what could it be? Could it be serious?

Thank you for posting your question here, I will try to answer it to the best of my abilities.

Sounds like you have lymphadenopathy, I cant be sure what exactly is causing it, since it caused by a lot of diseases. I would recommend you see a doctor let him run your blood, urine and if possible a biopsy. From the results of these tests we can start narrowing down the cause. By the way do you have any other symptoms? If yes, please do tell them to the doctor.

I hope this helped.
