Benign Bone Tumors

Osteochondroma osteochondroma (exostosis osteocartilaginous), the most common benign tumors that can occur in any bone, but usually come near the end of long bones before. These tumors usually occur in patients between 10 and 20 years of age and can occur singularly or multiple. A multiple occurrence comes before family frequently. A secondary malignant Osteochondrosarkom of patients develops in <1% of patients with singular osteochondromas, but at about 10% with multiple osteochondromas. Patients with multiple hereditary osteochondromas have more tumors and develop more of a chondrosarcoma than patients with a singular osteochondroma. Osteochondroma rarely cause fractures. In imaging studies, the lesion appears as a bony prominence with a cartilage cap (<2 cm) on the surface of the bone without underlying cortex below the projection. The medullary canal is connected to the base of the exostosis. Medullary and exostosis are confluent, and there is actually no underlying cortex at the base of the exostosis.
