Hi,thanks for query .Swelling in mid line along with the symptoms that you have points towards possiblity of thyriod enlargement and some thyriod disorder.Swelling above collar bone may be lymphnodes that is enlarged due to some infection or inflammation in the region.You need to visit your doctor for proper diagnosis.You may need ultrasound of the swelling ,along with blood counts,thyriod function tests etc.to get proper diagnosis.Do not ignore,visit your doctor.
wishing you good health.
