Bone tumour can be described as mass or swelling that occurs in skeletal system cells that multiply without control. The reasons of most bone tumours are unknown. With the spreading of the growing tumour onto tissues in time, weaknesses and pathological fractures can occur in bones. If the necessary measures are not taken and treatment methods are not applied after the bone tumour occurs, it can be said that the bone tumour would cause various metabolism diseases. For this, two different bone tumours can be talked about. These are malign bone tumour and benign bone tumour. As it can be understood from the name, malign bone tumour is a bone tumour type that has much harm to bones and human health. Whereas benign bone tumour can be explained as follows.
Benign Bone Tumour
Benign bone tumour is a tumour type that is usually encountered in children and people in puberty. Benign bone tumour is almost never encountered in adults. Benign bone tumour, which can also be called basic bone tumour, usually occurs above arm bone and thigh bone. Benign bone tumour which can spread to other bones in time is one of the most common benign tumours. While early detection is very important for benign bone tumour, it is not possible to talk about clear indicators. Benign bone tumour is only observed in radiographies taken for other reasons. So, does benign bone tumour have a treatment? How is benign bone tumour treated?
Treatment of Benign Bone Tumour
If the benign bone tumour will increase fracture risk, it must be treated. For example, in basic bone cysts, the cyst is entered with the help of a needle and emptied. Tumour liquid is usually clear and of yellowish colour. Then radio-opaque material is injected in the tumour. According to the choice of the performing specialist, cortisone or demineralised bone matrix or bone marrow is injected. In this way, the benign bone tumour can be treated.
