Secondary lung cancer

Hi everyone,
I usually post on colon forum and I was hoping to get some info as to my left shoulder collarbone and lymph node swelling. I have stage 4 colon cancer with lung and liver mets. For the past 4 weeks I have been experiencing chronic left collarbone pain which is now swollen at the end and I have swollen lymph nodes to the left side of my neck. I was wondering if you could please let me know what's happening here. I had an X-ray but it did not show any more nodules in the shoulder region. I understand that it may be related to secondary lung cancer.

Thanks...
Andrew

    Tests
    Andrew,
    Has your Onc not recommended ct scans, and MRI to see what is going on? It sounds serious to me. You really need to get it checked out.
    I had to walk into an emergency room and ask for a chest x-ray because urologist said my cancer would not go to lungs. It did. I fired him. You have to be pro-active with this.

    Good luck,

    Mike

    Pancoast rumors often
    Pancoast rumors often manifest this way. You definitely need a new doc or a second opinion at the very least.
