Patient discussion about perfect

Q. swelling is not on the neck but where you would wear a necklace its perfect in shape all the way around and about a inch wide and slightly swollen and pain like a muscle ache by the shoulder and collar bone, came out of no where. i do have hypothyroid, but this is like nothing i ever had before; help please.
