My husband also has this. About 13 years ago he found out what the bony protrusions were but HIS come all the way through--and they are sharp, needle-like bony shards that poke through these seemingly benign photos.

A torus can cause suicide-inducing pain and also lead to other denal problems. Hopefully your husband doesn't have this problem but mine did--the tori (torus--plural) always poked through and never just sat there.
