Benign: These findings are associated with arthritis. Depending on the type of daily activities you can develop these changes at a younger age.
The "arthrosis w/ cystic changes" means that the joint space has changes in the cartilage that will lead to arthritis, which it seen at the clavicle; you have edema. An enchondroma is usually a benign bony cystic the bone but can predispose to fracture.
