Neck Pain And Small Painful Lump Above Collar Bone

Neck pain and small painful lump above collar bone. Is this just swollen glands? I have neck pain and noticed a small painful lump just above collar bone area of neck..pain is running up from lump. I thought it was maybe a neck strain but also feel very tired. When I press on the lump it hurts and I start getting mucus build up in my throat. What does this mean?

it could be a sequestration dermoid cyst or a plunging ranula. The history and location you have provided is too non specific for me to come to a diagnosis but I would advise you to go to a doctor for a full examination of the swelling and make sure that he/she rules out metastatic lymph node although that is highly unlikely in your case.
I'm sorry I could not be more of a help.
