This could be a lymph node. Supraclavicular lymph node can enlarge if there is any infection or inflammation in the surrounding area.

Does the lump move? Is it hard or soft?

Hi  I need some help . I have a lump on my left side of my shoulder between my neck and shoulder and  it's not to big or small and it's under my skin and moves around. Is  it something to be worried about ?
