Extreme swelling in collar bone, sonogram showed gland being larger, feel off balanced. Is it cancer?

Both glands on my collar bone are extremely swollen and I have had blood work and ct scans and MRI s and could not find anything, I also get very off balance after I walk around for about 20 min. My neck ears and head hurt really bad and I have trembles so they done a sonogram and saw that my gland in my left neck is very large and now they are sending me to an oncologist . Could it be cancer . Oh and also the other side is swelling now

Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your medical history,and as you said that you have lumps on your collor bones both sides possibly of lymph nodes. You are telling that your both ears and head is painfull. this indicates acute infection possibly in sinuses and neck and because of acute infection the draining nodes on neck are swollen. After C.T.scan, M.R.I. and ultrasonography you are now being referred to onchologist and you are worried about cancer.

You should not be disturbed so much because it is very unlikely to have cancer on both side of neck at clavicular region, by history it appears to be infective but exceptions are everywhere so please go for examination by onchologist and possibly for FNAC from lump to know about the real pathology.

With Regards.
