hi. i have developed over prior 4 months bone lumps in five locations. these are bilateral lateral knees, near the heads of tim-fib; the scapula bilaterally tough R > L significantly; eye orbits; right elbow inner aspect. The largest of these lumps is the right scapula, measuring approximately 1 inch by 1/2 inch i cannot ascertain a depth. They are painful more so with usage of the extremities or time. The only other lab abnormalities associated with these is a newly elevated parathyroid hormone and a chronic hyperkalemia of 5.6 mEq/L. There is no discoloration. They seem to grow fast. they tend to run atop the bone, except the left knee which grew out from the tim-fib head area, was approximately like a small finger in size, and has now developed almost a decubiti like ulcer at the pinnacle of the thing. i was worked up for carcinoid syndrome and do have a elevated chromogrannin A, but negative 24 hour urine and negative scan (nuclear medicine)
I have a little medical background but i am frankly baffled. i saw an orthopod who del the largest one and referred me to an oncology orthopedist, stating thee appeared to be sarcoma t him.
suggestions appreciated. thanks...rich
