Cartilage, although softer than bone, is made from some very tough stuff. It acts as a shock absorber and is able to take rather a lot of punishment. It is not, however, completely safe from harm and it can become infected. The cartilage of the costochondral joint can also become infected in a condition that is known as costochondritis.

Costochondritis is not necessarily a dangerous condition, but it can still be very painful. It can also be treated, at least to help reduce the discomfort of the symptoms. It will often go away on its own after a few weeks or so, but it can also last for months.
