Definition

Chondroblastoma is a relatively rare but benign bone tumor which grows slowly in the affected part of a person's body. It comes from chondroblasts or cartilage cells and usually leads to the deterioration of muscles, extreme pain in the bones and immobility of the joint. When not treated, chondrolastoma may affect other organs particularly at the lungs.

Treatment

Treatment of chondroblastoma is done by scraping the part of the bone where the tumor developed, and replace the infected bone with a bone graft material. Another considered treatment is radiofrequency ablation. It has less recovery time and is also less extensive.
