I visited a general surgeon who said that the coccyx seemed to be larger than normal, resulting in a protrusion under the skin, resulting in the fold visible in the picture attached. For cosmetic reasons, I was wondering is this something that can be fixed? Is there a procedure that can shave down the tailbone so that it doesn't stick out like this? Should I get a second opinion? Or is it safer to just leave it the way it is since it doesn't cause too much pain, although some pain exists?
