Also known as: CMF.
A variety of different types of tumors can impact the body’s bones, and chondromyxoid fibroma, or CMF, is one of the rarest of all. When it does occur, it’s most commonly among teenagers. Chondromyxoid fibroma is a benign tumor, which means it doesn’t lead to cancer. The tumor is made from cartilage and occurs near the ends of bones.
The cause of chondromyxoid fibroma is unknown.
A chondromyxoid fibroma tumor may develop for quite awhile before any symptoms are noticed. Pain, discomfort, a bony lump and swelling are potential symptoms.
If chondromyxoid fibroma is problematic and causing symptoms, a procedure known as curettage can be used to treat it. This involves scraping away the tumor and sometimes using a bone graft in the area where the tumor was removed.
