Head (of humerus)

The head of humerus is a feature on the humerus bone, which is the major bone of the upper-arm.

The upper part of the humerus bone (see diagram) consists of a large rounded part called the head of the humerus that articulates with the glenoid cavity of the scapula bone, and on the other side two protrusions known as the greater tubercle and the lesser tubercle.
