What is Chondroma of the bone?

Description of the disease

Chondroma of the bone is a benign tumor that forms from cartilage tissue. It usually occurs in long tubular bones, such as the femur or humerus, although it can sometimes occur in other parts of the body.


Chondroma of the bone is classified as single-chamber or multi-chamber depending on the number of cysts.


  • Pain in the area of the tumor
  • Restricted movement
  • Swelling
  • Deformation of the bone


The causes of chondroma of the bone are not fully understood, but it is believed that genetic factors may play a role in its development.


X-ray, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and biopsy may be used for the diagnosis of chondroma of the bone.


Treatment of chondroma of the bone usually involves surgical removal of the tumor. Sometimes chemotherapy or radiation therapy may be required.


Since the causes of chondroma of the bone are unknown, there is no specific prevention. However, regular medical check-ups can help detect the tumor at an early stage.


The diagnosis and treatment of chondroma of the bone are carried out by an oncologist or orthopedic surgeon.
