is it normal

Resolved Question:

is it normal to feel a couple small nodes in your right superclavical area? i first noticed them 3 years ago, and forgot about them. they about 5 weeks ago, felt for them and noticed them again. i do not beleve they have ever changed, biggest one is 1/2 cm. other is smaller. i also had cbc and chest x ray to be safe! i know for sure in the last 5-6 weeks no changes.. if these were worrysome would there be other symptoms?

these are very soft and mobile!

Small nodes at any region including supraclavicular region are unlikely to be significant. Since they are also not changing, further substantiates that they are nothing abnormal. If these were worrisome; they would have enlarged. Since your CBC and chest x-ray also are normal; nothing to worry.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.


I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
