By Mayo clinic: "in most cases, fibrous dysplasia occurs at a single site in one bone, but can occur at multiple sites in multiple bones. Single bone involvement usually occurs in adolescents and young adults". You should see you doctor for a leg X-ray if the skin over the lump is normal. If the skin is abnormal, fibrous dysplasia is less likely.
