Hi i have a swollen tender lymph node above my right collarbone about an inch in size it has become tender the last 2 weeks. I have had it for about 2 months now. I was ill 2 weeks ago but feel fine now i have no night sweats or fatigue or any symptoms like cancer. I also have had a sore shoulder which comes and goes months at a time but it only hurts at night.

welcome to health care magic
In the query you didn't mention your age..
Cancerous lymphnodes never be tender..cancerous lymphnodes enlarge in size in due course and they become matted that is they attach one another..
Swollen lymphnode above the right collar bone means it is infected..may be from oral didn't mention about other symptoms..
But the presence since 2 months is the odd thing..
Consult Pathologist and have FNAC(fine needle aspiration cytology) and the report will tell you the exact diagnosis.

Dont worry about the cancer,,it is not cancer
hope you understand my suggestion
Thank you
