Medical Minute: Enlarged Clavicle/Collarbone

Marlo Hampton enlarged clavicle

Earlier today a friend emailed me to ask what’s wrong with former RHOA cast member Marlo Hampton’s collarbones. If you notice in the photo above, Hampton’s collarbones are enlarged, like 2 small tumors.

Victoria Beckham

It isn’t very clear why Marlo’s collarbones are enlarged. It could be genetic. Enlarged collarbones (or clavicles) that look like Hampton’s can be caused by fractures or dislocations. The condition could also be caused by bone spurs or swollen lymph nodes (although that’s unlikely). Some women who are unusually thin due to diets or too much exercising may also display these collarbone protrusions.

If your collarbone looks like Marlo’s it is best to make an appointment to be evaluated by a doctor. It’s probably nothing to worry about.

      Maybe the consequence should be: “Imma tell your momma!”

      My daughter is scared as hell to get in trouble at school cause she know that if it gets back to me.. she coming home to be on LOCKDOWN.

      When she was three, I talked to her like she was 13…. get in trouble if you want to and you are having bread and milk for dinner and going to bed early and don’t even think about going in your toy store of a room. .. you sit on the sofa with two books until you pass out early of boredom.

      -different things work for different kids; you gotta find out what works for yours. They need a sense of consequence rather they are around you or not and that teaching starts at home.

      Good luck to you.. I know you will figure it out.

    • PumpkinsMama

      @ Diva Lack of patience is their biggest problem. But in class they’re is only so much they CAN do. So if he cares about his snack or “free play” then I say take it away. It’s not his lunch.

    • Just Looking

      Seems/Loos Like Marlo has not been eating

      ^I once tried to enlarge my penis using a pump I found in the .99cent bin at pick n grab…bad idea…ever seen a post dated polish sausage? Not to mention the results were only temporary :smack: fml…

    • ReadingIsFundamental

      what is that off color and bumps on Marlo’s left breast? It that a faded tat? (I hope so)… that looks illy

    • Ty

      *class* damn it

    • GellySammich

      Cool @ Diva. I tried out once upon a long ass time ago and made it to call backs. I wasn’t on my game for call backs AT ALL though cuz I was in boring Kansas City by myself… bored… ready to go home =/ and staring at all these little white girls around me :no:
      Plus I don’t have enough personality for reality tv :shrug: you can’t make me cry or get mad or… well anything really (even talk)

    • PumpkinsMama

      @ Ty he DOES need to be challenged more. He can count to 40, & spell his firs and last names and give you his whole address (unfortunately he gives it to errrrrybody in the st too lol) but his homework yesterday was two M;s to color. I was like WTF?!

    • GellySammich

      ew I didn’t even notice that RIF but now I can’t NOT see it :(

    • Former Morning Glory, Aspiring Friend Of The Board

      40.*class* damn it

      Hey sugar tits :kiss: what’s new :think:

    • GellySammich

      Pumpkin can you find him a school that adjusts to his needs? Look into some advanced programs (and scholarships!) that might be able to keep up with him.

    • MzTisch

      I know in headstart they tried that “depriving” schit with my kid once. It did not go well. Not with her IN class and not WITH ME afterwards. Those are babies. They can’t decipher why they don’t get something when everyone else gets one. Wrong or right. We can try something different, but you will not keep food that I pay for away from my kid. I coulda killed that bish…… I think it was because she didn’t drink her milk or some stoopid mess like that.

    • Former Morning Glory, Aspiring Friend Of The Board

      hey Big mama @pumpk :kiss: soooo where you been? Word on face book is you caused a scene at the piggly wiggly when they wouldn’t accept a wic voucher as payment for yo strawberry milk shake :think: sumthin about being placed on a mandatory 48hr 51/50 observation hold? :think:

    • PumpkinsMama

      @ Gelly that’s my goal but I swear most of these daycare providers just don’t give a Fugg….

    • NaijaGal

      I’m not saying some kids don’t need it but every kid can’t be adhd or add…most of the things to look for would make everybody in the world on medication (which may be the idea, but I digress)…a lot of kids get bored especially when they are advanced so they just act out…I hear Montessori schools are awesome but few and far inbetween

    • NaijaGal

      I swear most of these daycare providers just don’t give a Fugg
      =======================
      cause most don’t…I worked at a daycare center in undergrad…the pay is lousy

    • GellySammich

      It’s definitely the idea. Schools get extra money for every “special needs” student they have.

      ============================
      I had a former friend who taught special ed…visited her class a few times and they weren’t special ed in the least…just some “bad ass” kids they didn’t want to put with “regular kids”…chit was crazy

    • Former Morning Glory, Aspiring Friend Of The Board

      Is that you being arrested at the piggly wiggly in yo gravi :think:

    • GellySammich

      I once interned at a “special” school for my psych degree. That’s exactly how I felt about the children there. Most were there for anger problems and fighting. And some of them actually seemed pretty sweet (not that I was around long enough to really find out) as long as they were getting enough attention and respect :shrug:

      I’m off to have dinner with the “in-laws” :crying:

    • PumpkinsMama

      @ Bren :rofl: I. HATE. YOU :hahaha: and us’a (yeah us’a) damn lie b/c we dont have no damn country ass piggly wiggly in NY :nono:

      @ Naija/ Gelly I will NOT let them push their agenda on my kid. Like I said downstairs most shrinks think 3 is too early and then the kids end up MIS-diagnosed :(

    • PumpkinsMama

      Enjoy @ Sammich :rofl: GN :kiss:

      Hey Bren – Went to Marlo’s site and found you a Blue Big Ang dress and Extremly Extra Small Gucchi Belt :wtf: you can wear as a bracelet. You are welcome in advance, it’s my pleasure getting you ready for your date with DTTS. :kona:

      My collar bones looked like that when I was thinner. Now that I have put on some weight, they don’t. It’s just that way when people are thin. My two sisters look the same. It’s not a medical condition or an issue.

    • Audacious2

      Wow! That condition looks like true symptom of Anorexia. The both appear to be suffering from an eating disorder.
