The humerus is one of the biggest bones in the body. It is the upper arm bone, running from the shoulder to the elbow. It has a rounded joint surface at its top end and a hinge joint at its lower end. The ball and socket is not as obvious as in the femur. The humerus is hollow and filled with bone marrow.
