Hi there!

Bone tumours can present in young children without any specific symptoms and may radiologically appear quite similar to infection. A biopsy is often required to identify the cause. At this time it might be too premature to comment on the situation and I would suggest waiting for the biopsy report before discussing the situation and the management plan with his treating doctor.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
