    Hmmmm. Tough question. I don't think this is any type of cancer which

    must be your primary concern since you posted this in the cancer section.

    I don't have a diagnosis to offer for these variable areas of bone pain.

    I suspect this is not serious but it must be annoying.

    I hope you have a good primary care doctor.

    This will require investigation so you will have an answer as to

    what is causing this.

    We can never make a diagnosis over the internet from a description.

    This will require a complete medical history and careful physical examination

    along with some blood tests and possibly x-rays of the bones that are painful.

    Good luck ! 18 year olds rarely develop any type of malignancy,

    so you can relax about that.
