Having a painful lump under clavicle. Took physiotherapy. Muscle knot or something else?

I have had a lump under my clavicle ever since i got back from my trip to mexico 2 weeks ago. I have seen a physiotherapist since i got back and she said it was a muscle knot. It seems to inflame on and off throughout the day, but its not consistent with physical activity. It is now numb and the pain is traveling up my neck .

Thanks for writing to Healthcare magic,

I have studied your case,
According to your history and symptoms it seems that problem has arised due to lifting of heavy bags on shoulder during travelling.
If physiotherapy is not helping you may need to undergo some investigation to look for any organised mass which is not resolving.
Take analgesic with antiinflammatory to reduce size of collection.
Do ice fomentation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
