Hi,Thanks for your query. After going through your query I came to know that you have started having pain in the right side of your neck and collar bone. Sometimes you feel like you cannot breath and your whole body itches. You feel one lymph node right under your jaw below your ear that you believe is swollen and tender . I think you have developed some kind of infection. You should get your chest x-ray done .You should your blood investigation such as ESR, TLC and DLC done to diagnose the disease.You can get enlarged lymph node biopsy to arrive at final diagnosis.You can take analgesic such as diclofenac to relieve pain.You can discuss with your treating Doctor about it.I do hope that you have found something helpful.If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries. Wishing you good health. Take care.

Dear doctor, While I was playing tennis couple of weeks, I was hit by the ball with force on my left side of my neck. Initially, nothing was traced but, for last 5 days, the portion where ball hit me , started swelling and pain. Do you think i need to visit a doctor or it is curable with some home remedies . Please suggest me. Regards, Nsk
