Dr. Philip R. Schalow
First, what is the age of your husband? Is the bone growth at his ankle the only site of involvement? Has he ever been diagnosed with Gout? Is there anybody in his immediate family afflicted with Gout? Where exactly on his ankle is the growth? Does his symptoms intensify with consumption of red meat, wine, cheese or any other particular food?
A focused examination of the site of involvement and an X-ray of the growth is warranted prior to making any treatment decision to remedy his situation.
