you should have mentioned your age because that could be easier to comment on the diagnosis. anyway there are many causes of soft tissue swelling, if any bone tumor then also benign tumor can not be ruled out. but history of three months is suspicious. please make me informed about the X-ray report. further investigation can be planned based on this. visit a surgeon.
