Osteochondroma question

Hi everyone. I'm a 15 year old male that has been diagnosed with osteochondroma for a while now. Since I was 13. I am almost 16 so its been 3 years. I have been to many MRI scans and x-rays. The last specialist that I went to said that it will go away in about a year or 2. Yet it hasn't gone away it has grown... Today I went to another orthopedic specialist and he recommended me to another mri and x-ray. I got my x-ray done and am waiting for Mri appointment. He said that after he takes a look at the mri he will recommend surgery. It hurts when I sit cross legged and run. Since I am 15 I play a lot of sports and it requires running so the doctor is concerned as well as me. He said the choice is mine if you want to do surgery so I am wondering if I should get it removed or not. It is a constant disturbance when ever I run and is super annoying. I am also wondering how long the recovery time is and what will be the procedures

Please tell me what I should do give me your opinions.
It would be great if you have experienced this as will thanks !
Please reply asap
