Reason for hard lump on left clavicle ?

I have an enlarged lymph node (rubbery, painless, approx 1cm) on my left clavicle. I noticed it about 18 months ago and it has only grown slightly in that time but it seems more prominent - I now can feel it easily and it doesn t roll under the clavicle like it used to. I am usually a healthy person except for fatigue the past few years which I ve blamed on age/menopause (I m 50). 5 months ago when I told a GP about it he didn t seem concerned so am I worrying about nothing or should I get a second opinion?

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Single enlarged lymph node usually deserves investigation. If recommended you can get an FNAC of that lymph node to find out why it is enlarged. Do you have any health problems. Any weight loss. Consult your Doctor and schedule an appointment with a Pathologist for FNAC procedure which is relatively painless considering the node is rubbery.

No weight loss. Just feel tired all the time, even after a good night's sleep, fall asleep right after dinner, etc. How do I get the GP to take it seriously, given I've already asked him about it? Go to someone else? I am 50, 163 cm and 71kg, don't drink or smoke.
