I have a lump on my right collar bone, why?

It's non movable, quarter size, and doesn't hurt at all.

Unfortunately, since I cannot examine you, I will not be able to tell you what this mass is. Generally speaking, however, lumps near the collar bone (clavicle), in the absence of a history of trauma to this area, may include enlarged lymph nodes, fatty benign tumors (lipoma), and bone or muscle tumors. While most of these lumps will turn out to be benign, some can be caused by malignant tumors. Therefore, you should see a doctor, and have this lump examined.
