Pain on left side underneath collar bone. Taking Advil liquid gel, have ear infection also. Any relation ?

Hello.. I am having pain on my left side underneath my collar bone. I am taking advil liquid gel and that cuts the edge but I was also diagnosed with a left ear infection . Can your lymphodes underneath your collar bone ache if you have an ear infection? I am just a little worried because I had hodgkins lymphoma 5 years ago. No other symptoms.

Helloo .. Pain on the left side below the Collar bone and ear infection with a History of treatment for Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
Relationship of Ear infection with pain in the Collar bone area is a remote possibility. The ear infection would produce painful lymph nodes around the ear, especially on the back side of the ear lobule. They also resolve very quickly with antibiotics.
What u should be concerned about is the recurrence of nodes and or bony infiltration of the hodgekins infilterates. The nodal involvement and bony involvement can produce this kind of pain.
Also please look into movements at the shoulder and the shrugging movemsts at the shoulder, if these are painfull it could point to a joint problem.
The final advise is to have an urgent examination at the centre where Hodgekins was treated.
This should be taken up urgently for an assesment.
