Yesterday a soft lump appeared on the right side of my neck

Customer Question

Hello,
Yesterday a soft lump appeared on the right side of my neck about one inch above my collar bone. It was almost gone this morning, but as the day wears on, it is getting bigger again. It is slightly sore when I press on it.

Hi and thanks for the query.

This seems like a supra clavicular lymph node specially if it is at the junction depression between the neck and the collar bone. I would suggest that you see your PCP for this and have it evaluated. Any new swelling requires a thorough evaluation and histological diagnosis with a cytology or a core biopsy should be done.

Let me know if you have any more queries.

Please do leave a positive rating for the service.

Best.
