What is Osteoma?

Description of the disease

Osteoma is a benign tumor composed of mature bone tissue. It can develop in any bone of the body. Osteoma usually grows slowly and generally does not pose a threat to the patient's life.


  • Osteoma of the head and neck
  • Osteoma of the limbs
  • Osteoma of the spine


In most cases, osteoma does not present with symptoms. However, as the tumor grows, it may cause pain or discomfort at the site of its formation.


The causes of osteoma are not fully understood. Some research associates its appearance with genetic factors or exposure to radiation.


Diagnostic techniques for osteoma may include X-rays, computed tomography, or magnetic resonance imaging.


In most cases, osteoma does not require treatment. If the tumor begins to cause discomfort or exert pressure on surrounding tissues, surgical removal may be necessary.


Since the exact causes of osteoma are unknown, there are no specific measures to prevent this disease.


For the diagnosis and treatment of osteoma, it is necessary to consult an orthopedist or surgeon.
