It also is a non-problem except in a few rare syndromes -- your other ribs will protect this one. ...Read more

Forget about it: Please forgive my frankness. Fibrous dysplasia as an incidental radiographic finding in a healthy adult is a non-problem -- a birthmark of the bone. Algae Cal is a cynical health fraud. Be glad that Junior is a fitness buff and that you raised him well. ...Read more

Very rare: Ossifying fibroma, also known as osteofibrous dysplasia, is a benign fibrous tumor with local aggressive behavior. Ossifying fibroma does not metastasize.

I have mazabraud syndrome. Will fibrous bone dysplasia of the femoral neck cause permanent disability?

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. ...Read more

What is the prognosis of RAEb1. Dad has 1% blast in peripheral blood, hb 7.5 while others like WBC and plts are normal. He has dysplasia in three line?

Mesothelioma biopsy says 'portions of fibrous tissue infiltrated by malignant cells forming nests. Tumor cells +'ve for CK7 and calretinin. Prognosis?

Marker not prognosis: CK7 and calretinin are used to verify that the tumor is mesothelial in origin (versus adenocarcinoma of the lung). It does not provide information about prognosis. Factors associated with pleural mesothelioma prognosis include: functional status, blood counts, histology (epithelial best vs fibrosarcomatous poorest), and tumor size (degree of involvement of pleural cavity). Several new trials. ...Read more
