This young man was referred to the extremity tumor program at The Denver Clinic for Extremities at Risk because knee pain he was experiencing after a family vacation wasn't getting any better. Xrays of his lower leg showed a suspicious lesion in his tibia.
This knee xray is of a 64 year old man who had a 6-month history of pain in his leg. He had increased pain when he put weight on his leg and did acknowledge that the pain was worse at night. He was referred for evaluation and management.
A 16 year old male presented with a history of knee pain that was getting worse over an 8 week period of time. He related the pain, which was on the front of his knee at the joint line, to an injury when he stopped suddenly when playing football slightly hyperextending his knee.
