There are several types of bone tumours that can occur in any bone of your skeletal system. Common tumours include enchondroma, osteochondroma, osteoid osteoma, osteoblastoma, giant cell tumour, unicameral bone cyst and fibrous dysplasia. 

Cancerous bone tumours – Bone cancer happens when cancerous cells develop in the bone itself and develop into a tumour. Bone cancers are quite rare but can affect any bone of your body.
