Bump on color bone, swollen neck. Arthritis?

I have had a bump on my collarbone where they meet in the middle of my neck . The doctor checked for thyroid issues but there were none. Today I am swollen slightly at the base of my neck above the collarbone on the right side. I am pretty concerned as I just don t feel well. I hurt everywhere. The doctor thinks it may be arthritis . Any thoughts?
