Need good care: Even in our dysfunctional health care system, all bone tumors require a definitive and rapid diagnosis. The very fact that you have brought this question to healthtap shows your own proactive stance -- which is great -- and the need for you to get with your physician and talk until you either know exactly what is going on, or what will be the next step in your workup. Good luck and be brave.

See doctor: This is not a do it yourself issue. You should see your doctor for an evaluation.
