Pediatrician 's  Response

Thank you for your query.

I appreciate your observation and description of the problem. However it is not possible to comment on the growth without a thorough examination and necessary investigations. I suggest that you consult your doctor who may refer her to an orthopedic surgeon, if required.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Pediatrician Dr. Y V Siva Sankara Murty's  Response

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Further examination and investigations may be required to comment on the growth.

Post examination your doctor may order a X ray.

There could be several causes for such a growth and its very difficult for me to comment on it.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
