Brief Answer:
Benign condition

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Acetabulum subchondral cystic changes after stage 4 rectal cancer treatment indicate a fluid filled sac has formed in the concave surface of the pevlic bone where the head of the femur meets with the pelvic bone at the acetabulum forming the hip joint.

This region extrudes from the joint consisting of thickened joint material mostly hyaluronic acid which is a substance found in normal joint fluid that serves to lubricate the joint

It is a benign condition and there is nothing to worry

The recommended treatment for a subchondral cyst is to just leave it alone.

I woud advise not to remove the cyst as removal causes an increased risk of infection or possible problems with wound healing.

The condition may lead to osteoarthritis which may cause pain in pelvic region which could be managed by nonsteroidal anti inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) with your doctors advise
