What Does Lump On Right Collarbone Indicate?

I have a pea-sized lump on my right collarbone about halfway between my neck and the tip of my shoulder. I just noticed it today. There is no pain and it seems to move from the notch of my collarbone about a quarter inch over my collarbone. What could it be.
