What's causing excessive bone growth in adult on jaw, nose, forehead, hands?

Please help me...I have had all tests for acromegaly and pagets and these diseases have been ruled out. The symptoms appear  similar to acromegaly with thicking and density of bone structure in particular lumps thickining on fingers, and back of hands look denser, chin/jaw growth (but no teeth gapping), and forehead bossing (also lumps on side of arm). What disease could cause this? Also please tell me which would be the best type of specilist to see for further diagnosis? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me. ~David M
