Fibroxanthoma

Patient: My 16 year old daughter has been complaining of knee pain, when we went to the hospital this weekend they found a fibroxanthoma on her femur, what exactly is this? Thank you!

 

 

Doctor: A fibroxanthoma is usually a benign tumor of fibrous tissue. The cause is unknown. Not necessarily has to be removed bu ut it should be observed in case of excessive growth that may affect the surrounding structures.
