Could I get surgery on my shoulder at the AC joint as the top joining bone is rasied up and causes abit of pain while in use?

How Long?: If you haven't had this pain very long and haven't suffered any significant injury, it may be a strain of your ac joint (where the collarbone meets the shoulder blade). Often avoiding activities that cause the pain for a while will result in improvement. If you have had pain and trouble for some time, I would recommend you see a shoulder specialist. ...Read more

My right shoulder bone (AC joint) sticks out further than my left. Noticed a few months ago, but maybe its been longer? No pain. Could this be serious?

AC joint: The shape of the AC joint varies significantly among people. Some can have very prominent joints, while others have smoother appearing joints. There can be differences in one side compared to the other as well. This is especially true if there was a previous injury to the AC joint. If there is no pain, there is unlikely any serious problem. ...Read more

My right shoulder bone (AC joint) sticks out further than my left. Noticed a few months ago, but maybe its been longer? No pain. Worried its cancer?

Get a check up: The only way to know what this is to get a medical examination done by your doctor. You can also ask one of your family members to check and see if there is any obvious swelling or Asymmetry? If it is obvious to another person, then you must get a physical/medical examination done. An X-ray of your shoulder may be most helpful if you want to remove any and all your doubts about cancer. ...Read more

I have osteoarthritis in my AC joint with mild bone edema and am in a huge amount of pain, why won't my surgeon do anything about it?

Frustrating: Sounds very frustrating. Although I cannot answer for your doctor, if the ac joint is truly the source of your pain, there are several treatments that all work well. The key is making sure that this is the source of your pain and not something else as many people will have arthritis in the ac joint on MRI but no pain. Perhaps a second opinion if you are not happy with your care? ...Read more
