It is hard to say without a detailed exam, but you may be speaking about "bow legged" state. Do you have any functional limitations? Do you trip from this? Is this a progressive finding or "how you were built" so to speak? You need a visit with your GP for detailed exam and history for a diagnosis. At that point you can start talking about whether treatment is warranted!
