What does protruding collar bone suggest?

what doesit mean when your collar bone is larger and protruding more than the other side? I am 56 years old, but still very active, working 2 jobs. I have high blood pressure, I also take zoloft and zanax for depression and anxiety issues which do not affect my lifestyle due to the medication. I take a potassiium pills because of one of my high blood pressure pills. I take a mild hydrocodone because of my knee that needs to replaced. There is some hearing loss in my right ear, the same side as the protruding collar bone.

Hello,

This is a born defect, which may lead to nerve pain on this side. It is not related to the hearing loss and your knee problems.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
