In brief: No, not a tumor
Despite the name, tc is not a tumor, but deposits of calcium which form for various reasons.
Stem cell transplants are used to either regrow damaged/missing tissue (mostly experimental) or in cancer treatment when the entire immune system is purposely killed off by intensive chemo, and then replaced with a bone marrow transplant. For tc treatment, see a rheumatologist or endocrinologist.
