    Worried... swollen lymph nodes in neck and collarbone area...
    aandbsmommy posted:
    I have swollen lymph nodes my left and right side of my neck right above my collar bone. (subclavian area) They just recently showed up and are large.. Started out puffy feeling now getting a thicker feeling w out pain. Also, when this first happened, my breast started hurting. (I don't show any signs of being ill w a cold/ infection) I also have swollen lymph nodes in my neck along the right side for quite some time now. Dr. has decided to send me to the ENT dr. Past yr I have been getting sick very easily, have a persistant pain in my abdominal area and at right rib area, get exhausted, muscle aches...bones ache (feels like from the inside out) Feels like I have the flu most of the time but I don't.. body aches, headaches... I am a 40 yrs old female. Should I be very concerned? Thanks so much...

    Hi and welcome,

    There is really no guessing at this. You need to see a doctor.
    You may need a second opinion, especially if that ENT didn't seem to help you. Please let us know how you are doing. Please reach out for another opinion and I hope you feel better soon!
