Thank you for your query.

I can understand your dilemma. You will appreciate that it is not possible to give any guidance without a clinical examination and necessary investigations. Further information to facilitate a differential diagnosis is required:
1. What type of pain is present in the legs? How is it relieved?
2. Any medication that your son is receiving?
3. Is the light brown spot associated with any palpable swelling?
4. Is the spot painful?
5. Reports of any investigations done?

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son an early recovery.
