Hello Lennia,

Now that there are results, has Lennia brought my mother to consult an orthopedic specialist again? Of course, the one who is most authorized to explain the results and determine the next action is the orthopedic doctor who recommends the examination.

Osteochondroma is a type of bone tumor, it is benign (non-cancerous), which usually occurs at a young age, although it can occur in old age. These tumors usually occur at the ends of long bones such as the bones of the arms or legs.

In most cases of osteochondroma, this disease does not require treatment, especially if it is just one and asymptomatic. Usually only periodic monitoring and management of the symptoms are carried out, for example by using painkillers. In certain cases, for example causing severe pain, pressing on nerves or blood vessels, or disturbing it, surgery may be considered.

So Lennia should first consult an orthopedic specialist. The doctor will determine the next most appropriate treatment according to the condition of Lennia's mother.

Regards,

dr. Mega
