What you need to know about Benign Bone Tumor Removal in Porto Alegre

Benign (noncancerous) bone tumors are more common than malignant (cancerous) bone tumors. There are several types of benign bone tumor, including:

  • Osteochondroma is the most common type of benign bone tumor. It usually affects people from the age of ten to thirty.

  • Osteoid osteoma is a bone tumor that occurs more commonly in the early 20s. It usually occurs in long bones.

  • Giant cell tumor typically affects the leg.

  • Osteoblastoma is a single tumor that may develop in long bones and spine. It mostly occurs in adults.

  • Enchondroma appears in the bones of the feet and hand. It is known as the most common type of hand tumor.

A Benign bone tumor does not typically need surgical treatment. However, if the tumors are more likely to spread or become cancerous, or they limit your daily activities, your doctor may suggest you undergo benign bone tumor removal. The aim of this procedure is to prevent the tumor from spreading and transforming into cancer. Taking out the bone tumor can also prevent fractures.

What's the Recovery Time?

Everyone’s recovery time after bone tumor removal can be different, depending on the type, size, and location of the tumor. The recovery period can sometimes be long, especially if the tumor was located at the leg or hand. You may not be allowed to bear weight for about 8 to 12 weeks. You may also need to avoid athletic activity for 9 to 12 months. However, some normal activities and work (office work) may be resumed sooner than this. Your doctor will give you a specific recovery timeline, including when you can resume work, normal activity level, and exercise.

What's the Success Rate?

Benign bone tumor removal is a safe and effective procedure with a high success rate. It is reported that most benign tumors respond very well to surgical removal. The chance of the tumor coming back is very low, usually less than 5%.

While the procedure is generally safe and straightforward, it does carry some potential risks and side effects. These include infection, nerve injury, bleeding, and stiffness. However, these risks can be avoided by following your surgeon’s instructions. Choosing the right surgeon is also important for the success of your surgery.
