Musculoskeletal Tumours

These are growths or masses that develop in bone or soft tissue such as muscles or nerves. They may be benign (noncancerous) or malignant (cancerous and spreading to surrounding tissue and to other parts of the body).

Treatment of musculoskeletal tumours ranges from just monitoring for benign tumours to various combinations of radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgery for malignant tumours.
