"List of other diseases, conditions, or injuries and their treatment: i am experiencing a unique problem ,, from quite a few years .. when i was 12 i had slight pain in my right knee,, there was a swollen bulged part in the front part of my knee,, slowly my knee became weaker than the other ,, and gradually one half of my body became smaller (i.e.. there is a considerable difference in the size/strength of my right half skeleton and left half skeleton )now i have become very lean , m also loosing hair . ,i consulted many doctors but none were able to figure out what the problem was.., i fear that it might be cancer biggest concern is that I think it is spreading ...and the situation can worsen..."

Cancer can manifest with whole / entire body weakness but typically does not appear as a weakening of only half of the body. If, indeed, you had been diagnosed with bone cancer and had gone without any treatment for such a length of time, you would probably be dead by now. Muscle weakness sounds like a symptom of a neurological disorder. Therefore, you can consult a neurologist about the condition to follow up. Furthermore, pain and swelling of the knee is under the medical jurisdiction of an orthopedist.
