A few years ago I had an x ray on my wrist(after a fracture) and it showed I had a small piece of bone that had branched of my radius(it might have been ulna, I can’t quite remember) and was growing at a right angle. They offered an operation but since I was 15 and unlikely to grow any more we decided not to bother as it was unlikely to cause any issues and I didn’t want the scar, does anyone know what this is called? The doctor told me but it’s been so long I’ve forgotten..
