Depends: Depends on bone affected with fibrous dysplasia. The bone overgrows but is less strong than normal bone. Fibrous dysplasia involving hip and proximal femur would be easily fractured and require sometimes surgery for healing. Fibrous dysplasia involving finger, rib, or forearm bone would be less hazardous.
