Hello, Generally bone tumours are hard in consistancy & are painless but with few exceptions. Pain will be produced by them only when they cause pressure symtoms on the surrounding tissues while they grow in size. It could be a tumour but dont worry as this could be a benign bone lesion also. Get an orthopedic surgeons consultation for further evaluation and management.Regards
