I have a kidney bean shaped lump, about an inch


Q: I have a kidney bean shaped lump, about an inch long just inside my right collarbone, had it about 3 weeks (had similar about 8 months ago and it went on its own), in last few days a small tender pea size lump has appreared next to it. My neck is achey and sore in the evenings and sometimes morning, along with ear ache and sore throat at these times. I have been havingnight sweats, but not sure if that's due to the heat. Other than tired, I'm generally ok. I've googled and its come up with hodgkins and non Hodgkin s, but I'm wondering what non cancerous explanations there could be? My bloods returned ok, other than crp of 129.
