Lump on the collar bone. Is it due to over exertion?

I m 17 and today while in a lecture I was just absentmindedly rubbing my collar bone when I discovered a lump in the fleshy part behind it. I could only feel it when I pushed it to on top of my collarbone. I could easily move it but it has really panicked me. I m involved in the cadets and would do a it of heavy lifting, carrying rucksacks etc and staying outside overnight. I don t have one on my right side and I m really worried.

Thanks for writing to us.

Without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of the lump. Possibilities that may need to be considered include enlarged lipomas, cysts, growths from underlying connective tissue etc. Ii could be due to muscle pull or spasm.
I would suggest getting this evaluated by an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
