Small bone hard bump on the bottom left of my rib close to the middle. Doesn't hurt. What is this?

To be a tumor in this location. It is most likely this is just a normal variant, a bone more prominent on one side than the other.

If a individual has Small Bones at the same Height compare to Another Healthy Individual Does it mean he has Low Bone Density?
Yes, lower at least: Hi. The "bone density" measured with DXA is actually an "areal bone density", meaning it's a mass/area, not a mass/volume (which is a true DENSITY in scientific terms). So the mass drops by the inverse cubed power and the area only drops by inverse squared. Since smaller bones have a smaller area, compared to the average population, the small-boned person will have a lower AREAL bone density. ...Read more

Adult maybe swallowed a small piece of a rib bone. Any concerns, no symptoms, not sure if he swallowed it, ?
How small?: Small bone fragments may pass harmlessly through your gut. However, if they turn sideways, they may get stuck at any point. This may cause local inflammation (in the esophagus and throat it may feel like something is stuck when it is not), rupture, foreign body reactions, and impede eating as food backs up behind the obstructing bone. Tiny bone fragments may not be readily found on x-ray. ...Read more
It depends...: A person who swallows a small hard object such as a piece of bone, and then continues to eat solid food without problems... need not worry. If he was able to eat foods like bread or meat afterwards, then he knows the small hard object is in his stomach. Small bones that get in the stomach just get pooped out with the regular poop... unless you are really, really unlucky. So, generally, no worries. ...Read more
Needs Immobilization: It depends on where the piece is, the amount of blood supply to help heal it, and how stable or immobile the piece is. At times, a small fracture fragment may not heal bone to bone but merely attach by scar tissue which may work as well. An example is the very tip of the thumb. When involving part of a joint, healing becomes more critical, requiring proper immobilization by cast or surgery. ...Read more

But, it is statistics (look at all data), so some normal babies and some with other syndromes can have the same finding. ...Read more

There's limitation: Like any radiological testing whether mri, ct scan or bone scan, they cannot detect microscopic disease. Generally speaking, the cancer has to be about 5mm before we can say with some certainty whether it's suspicious or not. For plan xray, the bone cancer needs to have eroded the bone, cause abnormal calcification or elevate the periosteum before it's visible. ...Read more
