Welcome and thank you for your question.

You do seem to have symptoms in various systems of your body.

A bone island is a benign growth in the bone marow due to overgrowth of bone or catilage cells. it generally causes no problems and requires no treatment.

But the foul watery discharge from the rectum needs to be investigated - you need a stool test as well as a colonoscopy. You may even need a barium enema.

The differece in thickness of teh thighs need to be estimated by a professional - a proper measurement will help in diagnosing if you do have fluid retention. Fluid retention usally occurs first around the ankles and then higher up in the legs.

.Please see an internla medicine specialist first - he/she will be able to order a number of tests like tests for the liver, stool test a complete blood tests etc and also a general checkup to identify the medical condition you are suffering from. You will also be referred to the appropriate specialist.

I hope this helps.
