What Causes Lump On The Collar Bone?

Hello, I have a hard painful lump on my collar bone, it could be my collar bone, but I'm not sure yet. It burns if I put RUBA535 on it. I also have had my root canals done and I'm not sure if its caused by that. I have not fallen or gotten hit in any way, I have resently got a new job and I'm quite tired because of the time change on my job, but that is normal. What could this lump on my collar bone be? Thank you.

Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
You may have enlarged cervical lymphnode. It can be due to reactive hyperplasia, tuberculosis or lymphoma. Or you may have soft tissue tumor or cyst. You should go for fine needle aspiration cytology or biopsy of that lump.
It will give you exact diagnosis.
Then you should take treatment accordingly. Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
