Hi, Mild asymmetry of the body structures is a normal occurrence. If the increase in the size of your collar bone is a recent occurrence, then it needs to be evaluated. It could be due to an injury, an inflammation or a growth. But you do not seem to have pain so inflammation can be ruled out. Please consult your primary care physician for further evaluation. He will examine you to determine the origin of the swelling and may ask for an X ray of the collar bone.
