Is there any treatment...

Is there any treatment for a broken collar bone?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

No, I just have this bump right by my strunum

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

It's not that sore, it is just uncomfortable when I raise my arm.

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

I am in good health. I haven't taken anything for pain. I hope it is just swelling.

How are you sure it is a broken collar bone? Did you have trauma? Or did a doctor tell you this after a clinical examination?

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
