Any lumps in the collar bone area should be looked at. It sounds like a lymph node. How big is it? It is probably just a reaction to an infection of some sort. Make an appt with the doctor - they will probably give you antibiotics to see if that helps to decrease the size. But to me it does just sound like a reactive lymph node.....although the collar bone area is not one to mess with. Get it checked out to ease your mind! I've noticed that when I am worrying about something I'm tense in all areas of life. It drains the joy. So get it looked at so you can stop worrying!

I would make an appointment as soon as possible to have it checked out. There is no other way to know whether or not it is cancerous. I am an oncology nurse.
