Leg pain

Hi, I have a 5 year old little boy who has been complaining on and off for months about leg pains. I thought it could be growing pains but I was told this mainly affects children in the evening/ nighttime but he complains all times of the day including mornings and sometimes nighttime about the pains. Sometimes it is both legs other times it is just one leg. I'm wondering if this has happened to anyone else's children and if so was it just growing pains or something else. Many thanks x

I would take to gp tbh. I don't want to scare you, and it is 99% nothing serious but leg pains can be a symptom of some childhood cancers

Definitely should get checked out, as PP above says.
