A bone tumor is an abnormal cell or tissue growing in a bone. It can be either benign or malignant. People with benign bone tumor often do not have obvious symptoms. Sometimes a benign bone tumor will recover by itself. But sometimes a surgery to remove the tumor may be considered.
A bone tumor is a condition when there is certain abnormal lump or mass growing in a bone. The abnormal growing tissues may replace healthy tissue with abnormal tissues. Eventually it may weaken the structures of bones. Meanwhile, a bone tumor may be benign or malignant.
The cause of a benign bone tumor is unknown. Over growth of bones, stimulations of inflammation, metabolic problems, congenital defects of bones, radiation and injury can be possible causes. Bone tumors of the benign type occur more often than malignant ones. Though a benign tumor will remain at the same place and will not spread into other tissues, the size of a benign tumor can still enlarge. And a benign bone tumor is named according to the original cell type, for example, osteoma starts from bone cells (osteoblasts), chondroma starts from cartilage cells (chondroblasts), and osteochondroma starts from both bone cells and cartilage cells. People with a benign bone tumor usually do not have obvious symptoms. However, a palpable mass can be the first sign of a benign tumor, and then pain may come later. Since bone tumors can weaken the structure of bones, most of the people find a benign bone tumor after a fracture happens.
The treatments of a benign bone tumor will depend on the severity. Some benign bone tumors may recover after a period of time and do not need treatment. It is recommended to visit a doctor regularly and have a regular follow-up. Regular imaging tests such as x-rays can see if the tumor shrinks or grows. For some cases, surgery may be needed to remove the tumor.
