I have a lump in my chest that has spread to my neck. The lump in my chest started hurting about a month ago and thats when i noticed it. The lump in my neck has gradually gotten larger. Two weeks ago my left chest, left neck, and left side of my face became numb six days later i regained feeling. Over the past three weeks i have had a low grade fever that comes and goes. I have been to multiple doctors and no one can give me a diagnosis.

  • Are these ''lumps''lymph nodes?If they are,they can be biopsied easily.If not.then describe the lumps specifically both as to location and to how they feel.

  • The lump in my chest is just below my clavicle and is very hard it is 3 in by 1in and is probably protruding 1/4 in. The one in my neck is not as hard but does not feel like regular tissue. I have been told they are not lymph nodes. I had a ct scan and was told everything was within "normal" range and that there was some swollen lymph nodes on that side.
