Hi! I’m a teenager who had a lump on the knee for 5 months and has been experiencing aches around that knee and higher up in the leg. I can’t exactly pinpoint a location. In the last 24 hours the aches have gotten sharper. Bone cancer pain is supposed to get worse over time, so I’m convinced that’s what it is.
I know I have to tell my parents about this ASAP. I just don’t know how. What type of approach should I use? And how do I convince the doctor that I need it scanned? And lastly, how do I deal with seeing my loved ones reactions to my potential diagnosis?
