Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of his symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include inflammations, degeneration, arthritis, growths/ masses, fractures, dislocations, causes related to the tendons/ ligaments etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician or a rheumatologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
