Customer Question
I have a tender spot...
I have a tender spot on my collarbone right near where that muscle attaches at your collarbone and runs up your neck. It is tender and hurts throughout the day. There is no swelling that I can tell, but I'm scared to death it's a lymph node. I had a painful sore in my ear last week that has gone away this week, a slight pain in my throat due to that sore in my ear. I also carry a 20 pound plus camera strap that rubs on that side. I haven't had a fever or any other symptoms. Just that tender spot. Could it be a lymph node or cancer of some sort?

It's sore right above that bone.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Almost feels like a bruise when I press on it.

Got it--thanks

And how long has it been tender?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Just a few days

OK

First off that isn't a lymph node--wrong location and if it were, a tender lymph node would not be from cancer

It's just a sore tendon/muscle there and probably was caused by the camera strap

So nothing to worry about

Please let me know if you need any more information
