Hello ~

I've had mild to severe pain in both hips for years now. Chalked it up to possible Lyme Disease. I just had the worst one (right hip)xrayed, results showed a bone cyst. Allegedly it's benign. How can they know without biopsy? What is normally the course of action?

I know I don't want to stress myself to death about it, nor do I want to be complacent. Perhaps it's the word cyst, or the word biopsy, but I want to be as informed as possible.

I did a search on this site for the word cyst and find the original questions but not the replies, am I doing something wrong?

Thanks for any assistance offered.

Joyous Howls Camille
