Tumour

A tumour is a lump or mass of tissue that is formed when cells divide uncontrollably. A tumour replaces healthy tissue with abnormal tissue and can weaken the bone causing it to break or fracture.

Tumour growth or behaviour will vary according to the type of tumour and depending on whether the tumour is non-cancerous (benign) or cancerous (malignant).

Most bone tumours are benign. They tend to grow slowly and don't usually tend to reoccur once removed by surgery. Benign tumours tend to stay non-cancerous except in rare cases.
