The damage to the scapula (shoulderblade)
The bone growth on the right humerus:What we agree on: There is a bone growth about a third of the way down the humerus near the shoulder end, at a point where a muscle attaches.
The growth at the knee joint:
Ben's theory: "Pharaoh did not have osteoarthritis in the femur – it looks like something called an ossifying haematoma (a bone cyst)."
What I think: I asked my mum what a haematoma is because she is a nurse. It is blood which gathers not in the veins but in the tissue in a particular spot. Ossifying means turning into bone. It sounds like it had a knee injury for the blood to be there. I think Ben is right have this but whatever caused it it must have been nasty for the fox.
