Varies.: the location, extent and progression of the dysplasia varies. BUT it occurs after the bones are already formed. The femoral neck is a relatively bad spot for it but it is ONE spot. so, there are limits on the effect of it in isolation. Furthermore the muscle myxoma's vary but since some become malignant they all have to be removed.
