A year ago a humeral head enchondroma was found due to shoulder injury. A cyst or mass came a couple months later near the area but never looked at. Was told I had rotator cuff tendonitis and rest. Lump/cyst still ignored. Finally got to ocologyst who also wants to do bone biop however orthopedic wont sign off on it so cant get confirmed non cancer for tumor. In the meantime I have the knee, hip and butt area that all have bursa swelling and last two weeks hand and above ankle swelling. Was told this week that the cyst/lump is actually pooling fluid never a cyst. If this was chondrosarcoma we wouldnt know or olliers or bursa infection because not one doc will step up and order these test or even thermal imaging. Instead after phys therapy, cortisol shots and hydrotherapy not working now arthritis and lupas are being considered. Anyone able to tell me what this has to do with random pockets of fluid and multiple bursa swelling at the same time or enchondromas? Has anyone had this happen to them in full or in part and what did you do? Thank you for readding my post.
