Hi doctor,

I had ankle joint trauma eight years ago, and it is still swollen. I had x-rays two days ago, and it showed 1 cm calcification in front of the joint. How to treat this?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You have mentioned trauma to your ankle region around eight years back with associated swelling and calcification.
  • Can you send me the recent x-rays of the affected joint and clinical pictures showing the range of movement of the injured ankle?
  • If the calcification is an incidental finding and is not causing any symptoms in your case, then it may be left untouched. But, if there are episodes of inflammation, pain, etc., then it needs to be removed.
  • Anyway once you send me all the details, I can have a look and let you know what is required.
