Hello!

He should go for testing his blood uric acid levels to rule out gout.

He should go for X-ray scans and some other blood tests to rule out osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis or Rheumatic fever etc.

Ask him to see a rheumatologist / orthopedician for a proper diagnosis and treatment.

Take care!
