X-ray of an undiagnosed healed clavicle fracture showed bony bump formed very close to the coracoid, causing sharp pain during sleep. Any suggestions?

X-ray of an undiagnosed healed clavicle fracture showed bony bump formed very close to the coracoid, causing sharp pain during sleep. Any suggestions?

Sharp pain during: sleep would unlikely be linked solely to a bone bump. One must asses the soft tissue structures near that region as well as the joints close to that region, and the ligments that hold the clavicle , the coracoid and the acromion in reaaltionship to each other. , as a start. The bone bump may ne a so called red herring, a finding that is not realted to the real issue or can indirectly linked. ...Read more

Generalised OA (x-Ray hands feet knees hip clavicle, MRI spine) dry eyes/mouth, history hypermobility, lumbar/cervical stenosis radiculopathy TMJD diverticulitis prolapses FUO - but seronegative and comprehensive blood tests always normal. Any ideas?

Explanation: My suggestion that you generalized OA mostly degenerative disease, not the inflammation. And blood work so far remains normal. History of hyper mobility could be reason of early degenerative changes in multiple joins. ...Read more

If you are: otherwise healthy and fracture is not displaced too badly, sling or figure of 8 splint is all you need. Consult with an ortho surgeon for more specific advice. ...Read more

What could a painful, hard, non movable lump on 9 month old sons left clavicle area be?? When X-ray shows normal 2 times??

What could a painful, hard, non movable lump on 9 month old sons left clavicle area be?? When X-ray shows normal 2 times??

Lump: It is probably an enlarged lymph node and likely benign. It could be a cyst of some kind, but thats less likely. Why was it xrayed twice? See your pediatrician. The baby should be examined for other "lumps" particularly in both axillae, groin, and opposite neck area. I would check the baby's CBC to make sure the white count wasn't ominous. ...Read more

I'm a 45 yo female. I had an X-ray done. It said osseous structures demonstrates a probable 1 CM lytic focus versus artifact overlying the clavicle. ?

I'm a 45 yo female. I had an X-ray done. It said osseous structures demonstrates a probable 1 CM lytic focus versus artifact overlying the clavicle. ?

Real vs artifact: Did you discuss with the MD who ordered the X-ray? Why was it ordered in first place? Lytic lesions have to be evaluated farther. First repeat the film make sure it's truly there. If it is, you need to have more studies done to determine what it really is. ...Read more

Clavicle repaired with plate two years ago. Chronic discomfort at ends, top of arm and near breastbone. X-ray indicates bone healed & no issues. ?

Hardware removal : Couple of things to consider. Hardware removal is an option. It may not relieve all of your pain, but could help. Pain at the sternoclavicular joint (breastbone) could indicate an injury to that joint. Unfortunately, not many good options for that problem. ...Read more

If you have a large swollen lymph node above clavicle will it show up on chest x ray?

If you have a large swollen lymph node above clavicle will it show up on chest x ray?

Doc recommends starting rehab after a medial end clavicle-fracture after only 4weeks to prevent a stiff shoulder. X-ray doesnt show union. too fast?

Doc recommends starting rehab after a medial end clavicle-fracture after only 4weeks to prevent a stiff shoulder.
X-ray doesnt show union. too fast?

Rehab clavicle Fx: It usually takes 12 weeks for fractures to heal, so I would not expect to see significant callus formation this early. As long as the fracture is adequately reduced and immobilized, healing should occur. Lack of shoulder movement over a prolonged period can result in adhesive capsulitis. A licensed physical therapist will be able to guide appropriate therapy to prevent this condition. ...Read more

My shoulder just started hurting yesterday morning. What does this mean? and what do I have? and do I have to go to hospital for an X-ray

My shoulder just started hurting yesterday morning. What does this mean? and what do I have? and do I have to go to hospital for an X-ray

Need more info: The shoulder "hurting" may be secondary to a variety of reasons. Need more history, description of the pain, where it goes, what movements make it painful, etc. Would suggest just warm moist packs, 3 times per day for about 15 min. If still painful in 2-3 days, or worsening, or new symptoms, then would suggest MD visit. ...Read more

I have dharp pain with pressurre in my back onbleft side below shoulder blade. They found a 5mm shadow in an x-ray. The pain is really bad @ night?

Ask "they"...: Sounds like you have already seen a medical professional for your symptoms if you have had an x-ray. It is not clear what type of x-ray you had or where the shadow was in a lung or in a bony structure. In any respect, the physician who ordered the study would be the most qualified person to give you an idea of diagnosis and rec. Further treatment. ...Read more

X-ray of right shoulder hurt a lot. Why so ruff?

Painful X-ray: Most x-ray technicians are very careful when positioning patients for imaging. Sometimes the problem they are taking the x-rays for may cause positional discomfort. Thus, the procedure of getting the films may temporarily worsen the pain. Sorry about that. ...Read more

How soon should I have a X-ray for a shoulder injury?

How soon should I have a X-ray for a shoulder injury?

It depends: It depends on the type of injury.X-rays are mostly useful for an injury to a bone or joint displacement,although sometimes we can see signs of inflammation on them as well.If the injury is a muscle strain, tendon or ligament injury, the xray won't show it.Significant direct trauma to the shoulder should be x-rayed right away.At about 10 days out,a very small break not seen before may be seen. ...Read more

My right shoulder x-ray reported "degenerative changes", what does it mean? Thanks!

My right shoulder x-ray reported "degenerative changes", what does it mean? Thanks!

Wear and tear: "Degenerative changes" means that the shoulder joint shows evidence of what you might call "wear and tear." Could be due to arthritis (osteoarthritis), overuse, prior injury, etc. It also means there is no quick fix for the shoulder pain. Physical therapy, exercises as tolerated, and possibly anti-inflammatory medications could be helpful. ...Read more

Can you tell me if on my left shoulder then did an X-ray and he said my spine looks like an s and now I need surgery?

Can you tell me if on my left shoulder then did an X-ray and he said my spine looks like an s and now I need surgery?

Scoliosis: you certainly would want to discuss this directly with your physician, but one possible explanation was that you were noted to have one shoulder higher than the other prompting an X-ray of the spine in which you were then found to have scoliosis. In general, if the scoliosis is larger than 45-50 degrees, they will tend to relentlessly progress and surgery is recommended. ...Read more
