The Cause Of Lumps Felt Above The Child’s Knee Without Accompanied By Pain?
, I want to ask . A lump appeared on the bone above my niece’s knee. The lump is hard as a bone. When in Ruens it looks like Tulanv grows in the form of horns. But strangely it did not hurt at all and my nephew could work as usual. What is that about? benign tumor or bone cancer? thank you
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Some diseases that can be related to the case that you submit, namely:
1. Osteophytes, which are abnormalities in the form of bone growth out of the body that occurs at the meeting of two bones or joints.
2. Osteosarcoma or bone cancer. Uumnya attack large bones in parts that have the fastest growth rates, such as the femur and shin. Bone cancer generally occurs in adolescence, which is at the peak age of bone growth.
3. Chondrosarcoma, which is bone and cartilage cancer.
It is better to bring the results of the X-ray examination immediately with your orthopedic specialist. So the doctor can do further tests. Even if needed the doctor will conduct further examinations, such as an MRI examination.
Meanwhile, you should rest the part of the leg that hurts. Do not try to press the lump hard (including the sequence, should be avoided) because it is feared to damage the surrounding soft tissue.
Thus hopefully useful.
