  • Osteochondroma?

    I have one non-recurring osteochondroma on my arm. It's basically a bone growth going out the side a little bit. It's not noticeable except when X-rayed. It does not limit my movement in any way. Would I even need to get a waiver for this?

    Uhm...If it can't be found it doesn't exist. Does your arm work? Carry on then. Might need a waiver but if it isn't visible and doesn't hinder ability it shouldn't be an issue unless you make it one.
