Growth around a surgically repaired broken collarbone
Patient : About 2 years ago I broke my collarbone and had surgical procedure to put in a plate and six screws. I have realized that my collarbone seems to be having a weird lump that is slowly growing, protruding and becoming noticeable. Is this some sort of bone growth around the metal plate and is it potentially harmful to my range of motion?
