Could.it be the manubrium of the sternum,which is the prominence at the top of the breast bone? Could it be the lower tip of the breast bone which is a piece of cartilage ( xiphoid process) & can standout prominently in slender people? A physician would have to examine you in order to advise you what that prominent bone is.
