Norwegian term or phrase: trostose
har noen plager med grunnleddet på høyre langfinger og har en liten trostose her på caput.
Helene
English translation:exostosis ???
Explanation:
Since from another one of your questions I get the impression that you might be deciphering a hand-written document, the above trostose might just be something resembling trostose like for instance "eksostose" ?
In that case the English equivalent would be exostosis; you can have problems with exostosis on fingers.
However, there are, less frequently, other kinds of "-ostoses"; so you might want to have another hard look at the first letters of the word.

Greetings,

Nikolaus
