treatment of benign tumors

At our clinic we treat children and adolescents with benign musculoskeletal tumors. Musculoskeletal tumors can present in a variety of ways. Simple or aneurysmal bone cysts present with would we call a pathological fracture which is a fracture that occurs following non-significant injury. Osteochondromas  presents as a palpable mass, as is in the case of which is simply treated, if it causes symptoms, by excision. Osteoid osteoma is another benign tumor that typically causes pain at night and this is treated with radio frequency ablation.
