In January of this year I noticed swelling on my "collar bone" - actually I now know it is a "supraclavicular fullness." I have had some other health issues over the pass few years, and because of those I have had several CTs - so when the ENT said that he didn't think it was anything serious (he could not feel any lumps), but... he suggested that I have a CT to be on the safe side. I opted not to have the CT (to be on the "safe-side" when it comes to radiation) - besides the fact that he didn't make it sound like it was really necessary, and because as I said, I had already had several for other health issues.
To make a long story short - the swelling has never gone away - although it has gone up and down in size. It has been about 8 mos., so I finally had the suggested CT - after the CT Dr now thinks I might have a blockage in the vein on my left side.
Now another they've ordered another CT with contrast - had it yesterday - I still haven't gotten the results yet.
My symptoms now: throat sore, neck hurts when I bend my head down, arm pit swollen and aches, headaches, dizzy.
Any thought or suggestions for questions I such ask?
