Question About the Sternum

Unread postby HealthForum » Sun Mar 27, 2011 7:30 am

The other night when I laid down to sleep I proped my right side on a pillow as usual. After a few mins I had a sharp pain in the center of my chest but not like the heart or anything more in the bone.

The next day the area in the center of my chest in what I think is called the xiaphoid process was sore. I rubbed it and noticed the the area is not flat like the rest of my sternum. It is round and the size of a golf ball. I have checked as best I can but cant find an edge, just a hard round mass.

I am not sure what to think of this I have no other problems. I checked my wifes and sons chest and they dont have this round mass at the bottom of their sternum.

Is this a normal growth formation caused by getting older?

I hate to go to the doc when I dont feel bad, just a very minor sore spot is all.

I posted here because what little info I can find seems to refer to some kind of cancer that forms on the rib cage and said if it formed on the sternum was 95% chance of cancer.

I know you will say see a doc but could there be any other common cause?

Thanks for any info you can pass along!

Its upper end facilitates the clavicles, and its margins communicate with the cartilages of the first seven pairs of ribs. The sternum attaches with the ribs forming the front of the rib cage. Without the sternum there would be a big gap in the front of your chest.
