What could the lump above collar bone in a breast cancer survivor mean?

I have a lump above my left collarbone about the size of a walnut. It s palpable and visible. People ask about it. It s not painful, red or warm. It s been there about 6 months or so. I m a 19 year breast cancer survivor, diagnosed at age 25. Stage IIB (right side), no lymphnode involvement. Chemo, radiation, bilateral mastectomies. ER/PR negative. I m currently still pre-menopausal. I have a doc appt coming up in 2 weeks but am very nervous... any idea what this could be?

This one is a lymph node but could be some lipoma also!

it could be some infective condition and in worse case metastatic carcinoma also!

Please go for an FNAC test to relieve your tension.

All the best and regards,
