Hi there I understand your concern... X ray that you have uploaded is not so clear and treatment mainly depends upon clinical and x ray findings... Hence, a thorough history and examination, especially looking for evidence of compression of retrosternal structures, is paramount. Specialised sternoclavicular X-ray views should be supplemented by CT/MRI if clinical suspicion is high...consult nearest orthopedic surgeon they will do the needful.
