End of collar bones issue

(4 Posts)

Let me say I have very bad health anxiety.

My 7 year old son is very skinny, you can see all his ribs.

Ive noticed that sometimes the end of his collar bone, the end near his throat pokes out a little. I have had a feel and this end is more prominent and knobbly than the other.

Is this normal or should they be the same?

Of course, bad things are running through my mind.

Can anyone advise me please before I have a breakdown.

Thank you x

Hello moreisore

Thank you for replying so quickly.

I must say Ive been Googling and totally scaring myself.

So it's OK to have non matching ends of collar bones? Why would one be so knobbly though?

Ive felt sick all day worrying.

It sounds pretty normal - human being aren’t very symmetrical.

However, if you’re really worried about it’s worth getting an appointment with your gp for him just for the peace of mind.
