 Giant cell tumor recurrence?

Hi,  45 y/o male, Persistent knee pain in 1994 diagnosed as giant cell
tumor of right proximal tibia. Tumor removed, pathology benign, and
repaired with cadaver allograph. Whole body bone scan done at that time.
For last 18 months, slight, persistent pain and bruising, in the exact
area of tumor, only on left tibia.  Could this be a recurrence? I have
an appt. with my ortho Dr. in 6 wks. but thought I'd ask.  Thanks for

Living well is the best revenge
