Suggest remedy for lump on left collar bone

Lump on left collar bone close to middle of neck. Dr did cat scan and blood work the area is not soft tissue and the blood work showed no cancer in thyroid. Doctor is not sure what it is running more blood work. He wants me to see my orthopedic. There is a pulling pain from the collar bone down. It feels as though it is on fire.

Hello and welcome to HCM,
A swelling arising from the collar bone is most likely due to bone growth.
Bone growth can be due to benign or malignant bone tumor.
A X-ray of the neck is required to assess the bony swelling.
In case the swelling is arising from the collar bone, a biopsy may be required to know the exact nature of the lesion and thus plan further management.

Thanks and take care

I am a 42 yr old that had a lump pop up on my collar bone area about 2 yrs ago. I was sent for a x-ray and it showed a BB. Much to my surprise I had no idea and my family (parents) claim the same. In the past 2 yrs I have had multiple test for chronic fatigue. My fatigue has always been blamed on Thalassemia and Epstein Bar Virus. I just feel something is being overlooked and tired of feeling tired!! Could this BB be pressing on anything important?? Its a lump that has gotten bigger in the past 3 months for some reason. Can it cause poison in your body? I have no idea how long its been there honestly! I am assuming childhood.

I have a quarter sized lump below my right collar bone, sorness and some swelling under right arm. Had a mammogram, was told as far as mammogram goes, everything ok - but be sure to follow up with family doctor, which I plan to do. Just wondering what I may be looking at.

I found a small, marble-sized lump in the triangular type area directly above the collar bone and below the shoulder bone an inch away from my neck. It hurts when I touch the area and move my neck around. It s moveable but seems attached. Are there lymph nodes in this area that could be swollen?
