Go to this website and post your questions. http://www.ktfoundation.com/whatiskts.html

Compression stockings might help. I could not find a direct answer to whether laser will help the size of your arm. Our son's derm said it is possible that once his Hemangioma is gone (from laser tx) the hyperostosis could correct itself.

Good luck.
