lump on collarbone

My 7 yr old son has a very hard lump at the end of his clavicle (throat end)  that is painless and only moves slightly when manipulated. Any ideas on what this could be?

It would not be possibe to comment on this without a clinical examination of the lupm that you are describing.

Since when was the lump noticed?

Because your child is only 7 years old , it would be best to see a pediatrician for a proper clinical examination and see what he/she has to say about the lump.

Do not try to manipulate it or try any home remedies without consultation with a pediatrician.

Do let us know what the doctor tells you.
Good luck.

How hard is the lump actually - is it bone like or mass like?

Also,a sk your doctor for a chest xray.

Do let us know what the surgeon tells you.

Good luck.

Any update? I took my 8 yr old daughter in to urgent care today for something similar. All he could tell me was that it was on her collar bone and not a lymph node.
