Swelling above left collarbone. Taking medication for COPD, chronic bronchitis. Due to medication?
I have had swelling just above my left collarbone for a couple of weeks. The swelling is soft & banana shaped and the swelling go up & down. I believe it reduces in size when I sit but enlarges when I stand up. I am being treated for recently diagnosed COPD ( Chronic Bronchitis ) & I was never a smoker. Could medications cause this swelling?
This swelling is not due to medicines.
As it is soft and moving,it could be Lipoma,a swelling of fat cells.
Nothing to worry.
Consult your surgeon and get it diagnosed and treated.
Wish you good health.
