Name:  Paul


Age:  31 years old

Location:  Melbourne, Australia

Areas of body affected:  Right femur and tibia

Personal History:

My history basically is that for a long time I've had a lump on my shin which I thought was only an old sporting injury of no concern. My wife has been at me to get it checked out as it seems to be getting bigger/changing in appearance. I had x-rays and bone scans over the last two days and was shocked with further findings of the condition in my femur as well as the tibia and which has subsequently been diagnosed as melorheostosis. I would appreciate it if you could provide some information that may help me understand this a little more.
