Are multiple palpable left supraclavicular lymph nodes normal?

In January I discovered two palpable lymph nodes on the left side of my neck (one in the cervical area and one in the supraclavicular area).  My doctor ordered an ultrasound and the results came back as normal lymph nodes (4mm short axis).  Over the past 3 months the number of palpable lymph nodes has increased in both areas.  The largest supraclavicular lymph node is now 8mm.  I just had another ultrasound.  This time the diagnosis is multiple reactive / shotty lymph nodes.  Question - is it normal to have palpable lymph nodes in the left supraclavicular area?  Should i be concerned the number of palpable lymph nodes and lymph node size is changing?  What would cause a shotty lymph node to develop in the left supraclavicular area?  Other then a cold, I have had no illness in the past 12 months.  Would you recommend I obtain a second opinion for the ultrasound from a different radiologist?
