Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Sorry in advance, but there is no medical term for the disease you mentioned, especially in the 'pallenta' part. Maybe you mean 'patella' and it refers to the knee part of the foot. If the diagnosis is a patellar tumor, this indicates that there is a tumor or abnormal tissue growth in the right knee. If that is not the true diagnosis, then we apologize for the misunderstanding.
Patellar tumors or knee tumors are very rare conditions, and the cause is still unknown until now. Experts are trying to attribute this to genetic and environmental conditions, such as cigarette smoke, radiation and infections, but what actually causes them is still unknown.
In the case of your child, although we do not know exactly what disease your child has, the overall tumor disease, be it tumors of the knee, breast tumors, tumors of the arms, back, or other tumors, are generally treated with surgical methods. If it is a fluid-filled sac or cyst, it may be possible to use an injection method to extract the fluid. In some tumor conditions that are influenced by hormones, sometimes hormone therapy can be done first to reduce its size, but knee tumors are not the case.
Our advice, because direct examination is also needed, if you are still not happy with the treatment options provided by the doctor, then have your child checked by another doctor, either a pediatric surgeon or an orthopedist. If indeed the treatment options are the same as those of the other doctors, then that is what must be followed. However, it is definitely a better choice for your child than having to live with such a tumor as it may affect his or her daily life too. So, hopefully it answers your question.
