A bone spur is a growth that forms on a normal bone, typically when your body tries to repair or protect itself by producing extra bone tissue. Contrary to the “spur” in the name, these growths are not usually sharp. They are often smooth, but may cause pain and discomfort when they press or rub against other tissue and wear it down. In cases where it is not creating any issues, there is no need for treatment of the bony growth, especially since it’s not likely that you would even be aware that you have one.
