    The body can do strange things. I recall working as a Mammographer a doctor removed a mole on a lady around her collarbone area as he didn't like the looks of it. The pathology came back +for breast cancer but she was a little young to do mammograms on but in her case we did a study. Her one breast had cancer in it but it was on the opposite side as the mole had been on.

      I'm waiting for the report from neck node biopsy. The radiologist and friend doctor said would be surprised if breast cancer metastisis to neck as I'm 40 and first diagnosis and all, but i have many from under chin line down left side to upper clavicle that radiologist and oncologist say are definitely abnormal but need report before rule cancer of course. Been confirmed 3 tumors in left breast and at least 8 axillary nodes are positive. Trying to stay optimistic but this has been almost 4 weeks of tests then wait, then more tests, more waiting......so hard to not think about it every moment of the day...

    Yes. BC can spread to a number of nodes besides under arm. collar bone, breast bone, neck nodes are all a possibility. You should speak to your Doctor or breast cancer nurse coordinator for more answers. Good luck to you.
