swelling

I have swelling in my collar bone area on both sides, the doctor is stumped doesnt even know what kind of specialist to send me too. I have had blood work that my white count was very high then he gave me antibiotics then my white count went back to normal, had ultra sound of the area, normal,  had x-rays, normal, my thyroid is normal. He said he has never seen such a problem. He said my lymphnoids might be leaking into the area but he is not sure what to do. Any suggestions?

I FOUND THIS INFORMATION ON A WEBSITE. SEEMS LIKE ITCOULD BE SERIOUS AND I WOULD GO GET A SECOND OPINION FROM A DIFFERENT DOC!

Enlarged lymph nodes above the collar bone (supraclavicular lymphadenopathy) are always considered to be abnormal. These generally suggest a cancer of or an infection in the region close by. Examples of these may include lung infection, lung cancer, lymphoma in the chest cavity, or breast cancer. Occasionally more distant cancers may seed these lymph nodes, such as genital cancers or colon cancer. Some benign causes of the swollen lymph nodes above the collar bone (clavicle) can include tuberculosis or sarcoidosis.
