  3. osteochondroma is the diagnosis,it may be multiple and may transform to malignancy(chondrosarcoma,most often) 1% in solitory and 5% in multiple lesions.angular deformities may require corrective osteotomy.malignant, rapidly proggressive,painful lesions and compressive symptoms require operation
