I have a hard lump on end of my clavicle close to my throat.

Customer Question
I have a hard...

I have a hard lump on end of my clavicle close to my throat. Ultrasound done and results were - "we see what you feel but don't know what it is". CT scan tomorrow. Would that show a thyroid issue as well?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the lump? Is it hard or soft?

Very hard - size of a marble. Approximately 3 weeks

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

2 X breast cancer survivor (inflammatory breast cancer on the side where this lump is - other breast had a different kind of cancer), BRCA 2 positive

A CT scan would show thyroid too.

An hard lump need to be ruled out for;

1) Neuroma

2) Neurofibroma

3) Secondaries in lymph node

4) Lipofibroma.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

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

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.
