Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum

Your symptoms suggest that you have bony-tumors, there are of various types (depending on the type of cells they contain like osteoma, chondroma etc) , some are benign and some may be malignant/cancerous. A benign tumor , if troublesome can be removed surgically. A malignant one requires elaborate treatment. So please see an orthopedic specailist and undergo the required test, without wasting time.
Takecare.

THANKYOU FOR YOUR INPUT. I SAW AN ORTHOPAEDIC SURGEON TODAY WHO SAID IT SOUNDS LIKE A MUCOUS CYST AND CAN BE REMOVED BUT MAY RECUR. NO TESTS DONE AND NO EXAMINATION OF LEG SWELLING. I FEEL I AM WASTING THEIR TIME. SHOULD I GET A SECOND OPINION. ALL MY MATERNAL RELATIVES AND PATERNAL HAVE DIED FROM CANCER.
