Hi, for a while now I have had these moveable lumps above both my left and right collar bone, like sitting on top of them. When I feel for them they move and then I cannot feel then anymore, really just in one direction. They feel pea sized and they are more pronounced on right side than left. I feel like the right side is puffy or swollen but it's not visible. They are located more towards where the collar bone meets my should/neck muscle in the cavity area. I have mentioned this before to 2 different doctors and they tell me they are not lymph nodes. My history of health is 10 years mild ulcerative colitis, gerd with hiata hernia and a constant phlegm/mucus with more frequent ibfections than the average person 4 to 6 colds a year/recently sinus infections. What is your take on this? My doctor has done so many tests of the blood and xrays of my chest and I'm always told I'm fine?

Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Well if the examination and tests including CT scans are all normal then it is unlikely to be anything serious

A possibility could be a fat pad or accumulation of fat cells like in lipoma

I cant see anything concerning in this situation

Good luck

Feel free to ask if you require any further clarification

If you are satisfied then do leave a POSITIVE RATING (preferably 5 stars) so that I may be credited for my work

Yeah, they all just feel the area and tell me it's nothing and it's been months and I do not notice any difference. One thing that concerns me is when you Google this (I know Dr Google isn't a good idea) it says you shouldn't feel anything. The right side also feels like a few of them move, they are right on the top of collar bone and move away when pressure is put on themThey almost move like deeper behind the collar bone. I cannot feel them unless I slide my fingers over them and they move away

It could possibly be a fat accumulation and nothing concerning

Good luck

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
