I have this bony lump above my left breast and to the left of the sternum. Its below my clavicle also. It doesnt hurt at all and doesnt seem to grow. It's just there. Can you tell me what it may be? An extra bone perhaps? Please tell me. I am only a 16 year old white female and worried about what it might be.

Have you discussed this with your parents?  I am sure they would take you to a doctor to find out what it is.  Good Luck.

Actually, I have. They plan on setting an appointment with my doctor and X-ray me. I just wanted to at least have a bit of information on what it can or might be so if-I sincerely and pray to God not-it turns out to be something serious, it wouldn't come up as such a big shock and scare me into not being able to sleep. I like to know what's coming at me. And thanks for the good luck. :)
