I have a large lump on my collar bone . I have a couple of small cysts (I think) on the collar bone. The large one seems to be getting bigger and it doesn t hurt unless I press on it. What do you think it may be?

Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM. Any swelling arising from the bone needs to be investigated whether it is painful or painless. Generally, inflammatory swellings will be painful whereas non inflammatory swellings (tumours) are painless. I think, it could be a bone tumour. I suggest you to approach an orthopedic surgeon and get evaluated thoroughly for the same. Hope this helps
