A fluid-filled swollen area on the left side above the

A fluid-filled swollen area on the left side above the collar bone and the base of my neck appeared yesterday morning. My doctor ordered x-rays which ruled out any lung issue. The swelling this morning is no better and possibly larger. I am scheduled for an ultrasound tomorrow. Have you any ideas what might have caused this?

Im 40 yrs old, 5 11,210 lbs and no serious medical history. About a month ago i was dragging myself off the bed when i put all my weight down and injured my right testicle,it was swollen and quite painful for a week or so but the swelling went down and the pain has gone,but still after about a month i am left with a hard ish lump which feels like its on the side of my testicle.... Is this just fluid or hard blood left behing from the swelling or something i should really get checked by my doctor?

I suddenly developed very swollen glands on the left side of my face. It s the one along the jaw, and the one under the ear along the neck near the jaw. When I eat, it fills painfully full, but I m not able to finish my meal because of the sudden nausea. Am using hot water bottle, drinking extra fluids, and messege to try and cause fuids to flow in those glands. But, what s causing this?

so 6 months ago I went to bed and felt something weird happening in the left side my neck. 24 hours later it had swelled to the size of like 3 fingers. I had already been to the clinic for a infected finger the day before and was given antibiotics.I also had a bad cough. I returned after the swelling started. I was told it was a swollen lymph node. of course. Two months later it was still swollen but decreased by maybe 25%. I went to another clinic. I wasn t given anymore antibiotic but I had a FNA performed. A thick tan pus came out but they were not able to find any cells for a biopsy. But still they got quite a lot of fluid out and was now the size of maybe 1cm. A month later had a ct scan and the results said unspecific slightly thick walled cystic mass filled with fluid. went to another doctor gave me more 7 days into a 14 day course of amoxcillan. Im not sure if its smaller but it does feel more movable than before. its been 6 months since the swelling appeared. it feels squishy,rubbery and smooth. I m not looking for a diagnosis here im just curious about the possibilities. is it unusual for a lymph node not to react to antibiotics and if so why?
