    Exclamation Is this bone cancer or what? Pls help.

    First of all, I'm just 15 years old. Female.

    I've been experiencing pain and discomfort only in my RIGHT knee and leg for nearly a year now. I can't sleep well recently. The pain is gradual. First it wasn't that bad, but now its really affecting me.

    Doctors aren't taking me seriously! I've already seen a couple of doctors and all they do is just pass me around. They can't even name my sickness. And i'm so sick and frustrated about it already!

    I hope some of you could help me. Please. I've already tried other forums but no one gives me their attention. I hope your the one who could help me.

    Well, the pain/discomfort worsens at night or when my legs are at rest. It also hurts when i just stand for quite some time and when i do physical activities that involves my legs. Also when i just walk. the pain/discomfort just attacks suddenly. I really am confused.

    I've tried anti-inflammatory drugs but they do not work.

    Could anyone help me? Has anyone experienced the same symptoms?
    I did some research and my symptoms keep saying BONE CANCER.
    i just wanna be sure. I'm pretty scared. But i don't feel a lump. Does that already cross out bone cancer? or i don't feel the lump because its small or something?

    i haven't done any lab tests thanks to the doctors i have seen.

    Any tips on how i can get a doctor to actually listen to me?

    Thanks so much!

    Oh by the way,
    I've had a blood test done just this morning. I don't know if its bad or it has a connection w/ my knee problem.

    MY RESULTS:
    Hemoglobin = 109
    Hematocrit = 0.34
    WBC Count = 4.50
    RBC Count = 3.50
    Platelet Count = 200
    Lymphocites = 0.48
    Neutrophiles = 0.53

    REFERENCE VALUE:
    Hemoglobin = 120-140(FEMALE)
    Hematocrit = 0.37 - 0.47(FEMALE)
    WBC Count = 5 - 10 x 10^9 / L
    RBC Count = 4.5 - 5.5 x 10^12 / L
    Platelet Count = 150 - 350 x 10^9 / L
    Lymphocites = 0.20 - 0.40
    Neutrophiles = 0.40 - 0.60

    THANKS SO MUCH!

    Tell them youre having chest pains
    no seriously, i think that might just be a growing spur... ive had those all my young+teenage life... and they also were night time pains.

    Can you describe more in detail the pain youre having?

    well, you really need to go see an orthopedist if its that bad...
    GP cant really do much, so have one refer you to one.
