See specialist: Your best option is to see an ORS who is a tumor/ reconstructive surgeon. There are several centers in Canada and many in the U.S.You want a surgeon who has done this surgery before( if needed). They can also determine if this benign bone tumor is the cause of your pain and your options. Best of luck!
