Dear Esme
I think it is best to speak to the orthopaedic surgeon who repaired the fracture in the first place. The mass removed was probably a ganglion and should not have anything to do with the bone. Unfortunately it is very difficult to make an informed comment on this as the doctor is the only one who can examine him and make a diagnosis
