Pain at tibia bone

I had a pain and swelling at tibia bone. Pain comes after pressing the local area. Pain is activity related only. Means while taking a stairs. No fever no continuous pain. I can sleep well. I have done scan and MRI also but reports are different. Scan:- stress fracture n MRI :- osteoid osteoma But the symptoms are not supporting the above findings. What should i do??

Hello there...... Osteoid osteoma, tends to affect young people commonly aged 10 to 35 can occur in any bone but is most common among long bones. It can cause pain usually worse at night, reflecting increased nocturnal prostaglandin-mediated inflammation ..Pain is typically relieved by mild analgesics.... However i would suggest you to undergo biopsy....as it is confirmatory.....
