Benign bone tumor: An aneurysmal bone cyst is a benign condition of the bones, commonly in a child which can lead to fractures. The cyst area often expands and weakens the bone, making it prone to fracture. The fracture typically heals, but the condition may persist and fracture may occur again, sometimes necessitating surgery. The humerus bone near the shoulder is a common location for this. ...Read more
Its a defect in bone: The hip joint is made of two parts. The head of the femur (thigh bone) fits into the cup or socket of the acetabulum (pelvis).

The area of resorption fills with fluid and creates a defect or cyst in the bone. ...Read more
