What is chondromyxoid fibroma?

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.
