hi friends I noticed from few days something hard where the collar bone starts towards the chest. Not sure if it’s a muscle or a lymph node. I have gone so many times to Er and to the oncologist with fears. Don’t know how to fight my anxiety

Hi Flo, I would let your Oncologist know for sure. You shouldn't feel bad about your fears, it's normal. Take some deep breaths and give your Onc a call.

Definitely let your doctor know if you have a suspicious symptom. If your anxiety is making life difficult, you can get help with that too! Ask your oncologist or primary care doctor for suggestions or referrals for help.
