Hello,

Please dont worry about your kid. When did the lump start?

I doubt it could be Acute lymphadenitis./?Primary complex where the lymph nodes could have mated.Kindly repeat the investigations.

Is there any history of injury?Is your kid playing & feeding well.?Is there any breathing difficulty?How is the swelling compressible ?increases on coughing? soft or bony hard?

Please visit an ENT ,Head & neck DR. Go for CT neck which will be helpful.Take care.

HI welcome to healthcare magic...........
Its pretty tough to tell what those lumps are , without examining their characters.
Its also a very unusual site too.
The most common possibility would have been a heamotoma secondary to collar bone fracture , but X-ray being normal rules out that.
The only advice i can suggest is to get a FNAC i.e fine needle aspiration cytology of the lump. U can go to a pathology lab and ask them for a FNAC of the lump. Wat they do is , put a needle in the lump and take a small material and study on microscope and then tell you what it is.
Hope i was helpful...
