Brief Answer:
It could be a recurrence of GCT.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for writing to XXXXXXX

There is a possibility of recurrence of Giant cell tumour at same site of surgery. An xray or an MRI scan will show up the definitive recurrence of the tumour. Giant cell tumours are notorious for local recurrence.

I suggest you to consult your treating doctor for further workup and management.

Hope I have addressed your query. I welcome any more clarifications.
