I have a hard lump on my right sternoclavicular joint. It has been there for a couple of months, but seems to be getting bigger. I went to my doctor two weeks ago, and he said it was nothing, just a part of the joint shifting with age. It continues to grow. I don't have a lot of other symptoms. I am always tired, but I work three jobs. I have had some slight nausea here and there, which is unusual for me. The lump is not painful. I did not understand my doctor's explanation, and he did not really even check it out. He touched it for a second, and immediately gave me his opinion. Am I being paranoid? Any ideas?
I would have another doctor check it out.. being painful is a better sign, though maybe your fractured it unknowingly. my daughter did that when she was young never said anything.. she developed a lump on her collarbone and I took her in and too it was not painful.. they xrayed it and it was new bone growing where the fracture was. so hmmmm maybe this is your case. I wish you good luck!!!!! hope this helps
Thanks, I will need to find another doctor. I have never had an injury that I know of. Might be nothing, but still concerns me. My dad died of lung cancer, and my mom is being treated for lymphoma. Will see what they say...
