Hello
Thanks for your question.
Since the lump changes in size with your period, this is likely fibrocystic disease of the breast (FCD).
This is a benign or harmless condition which is influenced by the estrogen level in the body.
When the estrogen level increases as your period approaches, the lump gets bigger and sometimes may be painful as well.
This can also be fatty lump or lipoma which is also a benign condition.
Given your negative family history, this does not sound concerning.
The sore collar bone can be due to the muscle soreness or stiffness.
Stress physical and emotional can cause these symptoms.
Besides fluids, eat fresh fruits like bananas, apples, grapes, berries as they are rich in antioxidants and essential minerals to help with your symptoms.
You can get this checked by your doctor when your appoint is due but there is no urgency.
Best wishes,

i am worried as i have read breast cancer can give pain to collar bone

That is not a common occurrence.
And by the time breast cancer reaches the collar bone, you will have other symptoms like swollen glands, big hardened mass in the breast.
Hence, this is just anxiety related not breast cancer.
Please do not worry.
