I am a disabled vet who is desperate for help and answers. My symptoms are listed below and I've been seen by my GP, oncologists, rheumatologist, gastroenterologist, and an ENT doctor. None say cancer but they also don't know what is causing the issues. I'm desperate for answers as it has been some time now.


1. Swollen clavicles
2. Heartburn
3. Lymph nodes are swollen in the groin area since 2017
4. Lymph nodes are swollen on the right side of the neck
5. Sternocleidomastoid muscle on the right side of my neck is swollen.
6. Random pains on shoulders, clavicles
7. My chest is slightly raised on the right side just below my clavicle.


A CAT scan of my neck has been done.
MRIs of my abdomen, groin have been done.
Ultrasound of my neck has been done.
Endoscopy was done by GI.
Colonoscopy was done by GI.


The oncologist says imaging doesn't show any issues other than inflammation of my collar bone


The gastroenterologist says no issues were found.


Something is wrong and no one knows. I fear that my medical team is overlooking something and I'm hoping someone has familiarity with what I've described.


Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
