Lesser Tubercle of The Humerus

The lesser tubercle of the humerus is minor elevation on the front of upper end of humerus, just above the surgical neck. The lesser tubercle of the humerus is  although smaller than the greater tubercle but is quite more prominent since it is situated in front, and is directed medially and anteriorly.

The lesser tubercle’s surface is marked by a large smooth impression for attachment of the subscapularis muscle.
