Hi, I was diagnosed with Grade-1 Chondrosarcoma at my right Iliac Crest. A wide excision surgery was done with all margins free. After 6 months I have a lump with pain and redness at my right chest wall and a lump like structure in my armpit. I took augmentin 1g and the pain and redness on the chest went away but the lump is still there on the chest and armpit. Can you advice me what can be the scenario. I had my chest xray and pelvic x ray done a month ago and everything was fine. Can it be normal infection or something else.

It can be an infection but the lump if palpable get a needle biopsy done with CT thorax/MRI. consult a surgeon as the the problem needs to be evaluated
