What Is Chondroblastoma?
Sometimes called Codman's tumor, a chondroblastoma is a rare type of benign bone tumor that originates from cartilage. Cartilage is the specialized, gristly connective tissue that is present in adults and the tissue from which most bones develop.
Cartilage plays an important role in the growth process. There are many different types of cartilage that are present throughout the body. Chondroblastoma most often affects the ends of the long bones in the arms and legs at the hip, shoulder, and knee.
Chondroblastoma is a rare type of bone tumor that can affect people of all ages. It is, however, most common in children and young adults between the ages of 10 and 20 years. This type of tumor is also more common in males than females.
