Let me advise you: To have this lump on the collar bone without current or previous injury it concern me, but if you had injury could be related to that. Go and check it out have them take x-ray and see what happen. Good luck.

A 59-year-old female asked:

How long does it generally take an arthritic foot to fuse? Its been five years so far that's its been trying to fuse.

Maybe never: A arthritic joint will tend to have less range of motion and more stiffness but will not necessarily fuse. Surgery is normally required to fuse a joint. There are are other treatments for arthritis in the foot depending on the location, symptoms and function. See a podiatrist for evaulation and discussion of treatment options.
