Thanks for your question. Osteochondromas are benign bony masses that can occur along the bones of the body. While there are documented cases of people having osteochondromas of the ischial tuberosity that also lead to some pain such as sciatica, this is not a common occurrence. You will need to speak with your surgeon
more fully about the size of the mass and the expected surgery
. Perhaps even more importantly, you will need to speak with your surgeon about the expectation that this may help to improve your symptoms of pain. There is a common understanding among surgeons that operating to relieve pain is fraught with difficulty, as there are occasions when even the best surgery will fail to result in pain relief. This can be due to a number of different factors, including the chance that even the nerves themselves have been sensitized to chronic pain issues. For this reason, it is always best to have a very open conversation with your surgeon about what the risks, expectations, and possible outcomes are of your situation and what surgery he or she will expect to perform. Please speak with your doctor
about this question and surgery.
