Hello and welcome to HCM,
It is not possible for sinus to drain into a lipoma.
Sinuses drain into nasal cavity and nasopharaynx.
The swelling in the clavicular region needs to be investigated whether it is actually a lipoma or some other lesion.
I suggest you to consult a surgeon and get an ultrasound of the neck to determine the location and relations of the swelling in clavicular swelling.
An aspiration cytology of the swelling may be required to determine the nature and character of lesion.
On the basis of diagnosis, further management can be planned.

Thanks and take care
