Brief Answer: Can be a lymph node swelling Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for posting your query. The long tubular lump in the left supraclavicular area is likely to be due to a pulled muscle or an enlarged lymph node or a soft tissue swelling like lipoma or fibroma. Since the swelling has subsided slightly, it is likely to be a benign swelling. For the confirmation of diagnosis, you need to get this lump examined from a doctor and get a MRI scan/ CT scan for any soft tissue growth and a FNAB (fine needle aspiration biopsy) done. Till then, you get this lump examined from a doctor, apply warm compresses on the lump because if it is a swollen lymph node or pulled muscle then application of warm compresses will help. I hope this answers your query. In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Praveen Tayal.
