In brief: SC Joint

A "popping bone" in chest of a thirties male ; leading to chest and shoulder pain implicates the clavicle (collar bone) where it joins sternum (breast bone) at the (sc) joint.
If this, should be exquisite pain aroused by palpation of this joint. If a lump is felt here, the proximal clavicle might have dislocated from the joint. If pain not readily remit with rest and heat, visit an osteopath.
