Huge LEAD Drain Elbow??? Age concern

I am replacing a toilet, cause due to faulty wax ring and inlet hose etc. No question or problem there.
Concern lies in the first drain elbow directly under the toilet. approx. 6- 8 inch dia. it seem to have some oxidation bulges. But I scratched all areas with a razor blade and everything seems Good and solid. what may of caused the oxidation that I believe is external only. I will get a better internal visual look see when the toilet comes off.

Just normal age probably. Condensation through the years I would say....

Not sure how the flange is, but I always replace the lead bend when I can. Although some are difficult....
