Lump growing in neck, collar bone, tuberculosis. What is wrong?

Hi have a lump growing in my left side of neck , near collar bone. After numerous tests, the doctors concluded that it is tuberculosis and have denied any cancer cells in the body. However I feel the lymp node has some other thing growing other than just tb as tb is a slow growing bacteria. However after every FNAC the lump grows bigger and is growing at a very fast rate. What else could I expect in it? Emme 27 years Female
