fasciitis ossificans--tumor in thigh (benign)

Can anyone give me some specific information about treating this condition?  It is similar to but not identical to myositis ossificans--it isn't on the actual muscle; it is between the muscle and the skin.  It is causing much pain and lack of mobility--we have heard that you just have to let it cure itself, (taking maybe 3-6 months!?) or possibly surgery can remove it.

Hi,
How are you? Fasciitis ossificans is a rare form of heterotopic bone formation, and usually presents with signs of local inflammation or pain.Before considering more invasive treatment such as surgery, it is best that you have this evaluated first by your doctor. Conservative measures such as watchful waiting may also help. Take care and do keep us posted.
