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.

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

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

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?
