What causes lump under the collar bone in case of breast cancer?

I have stage IV metatastic breast cancer that had gone into my lymph nodes, then my lungs. Had a CT/Pet done in Oct and it appeared things were improving. I just discovered another lump on the side of my chest , under the collar bone. I am getting another scan tomorrow. I have been on Gemzar and Novelbine since August. Why would a lump suddenly appear?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

That lump may be an enlarged lymph node infiltrated by tumor most likely, but as you are having metastasis already so it won't change a management.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. B.dinesh
