11.1. Inspection (1): Soft tissue swelling: Note the site and extent of any swelling. In the case of oedema, note particularly if bilateral (suggesting a general rather than a local cause). Unilateral leg oedema in women over 40 is a common sign of intrapelvic neoplasm.

11.2. Inspection (2): Localized oedema:

Localized oedema is common over inflammatory lesions and stress fractures.

11.3. Inspection (3): Local bone swelling: This is suggestive of neoplasm (e.g. osteoid osteoma) or old fracture. Multiple or single exostoses commonly occur in the tibia in diaphyseal aclasis. Thickening of the ends of the tibia is seen in rickets and in osteoarthritis.
