What does a lump on the clavicle bone indicate?

Sudden lump appeared on end of right clavicle nearly 2 months ago. Xray found spur under it. Prior to lump appearing I d been to orthopod due to shoulder pain. MRI showed slight tear that I was told shouldn t cause pain and extreme inflammation in pectoral muscle spreading to ribs. The lump itself is hard as a rock and quite large, may be extending down to right and out, toward inflamed pec. Bouncing between orthopedic surgeon and primary care doc. Dramatically swollen lymph nodes on both sides of throat, under right arm and sudden lumps both breasts triggered trip to breast cancer clinic for mammos and ultrtasounds. This revealed one tiny cyst to check on again in a year. Screened for Lyme Disease--negative. Suggestions?
