Born with a long coccyx

Peggy -

Hi, it seems I was born with a long coccyx. Lately, it seems as if it is protruding even more. (Is that possible?) It has also become slightly uncomfortable when I sit on it. I haven't injured myself recently. What should I do? What kind of doctor should I go to? And what types of X-Rays are suited best to see if anything is wrong?

Do most people with long coccyxes suffer problems too?

Any information would be welcome!
