Re: "Swollen bone"??

Most bone tumors and cysts are benign.

There are tons of different types of bone cysts and tumors, some occuring after injury. Osteochondroma is the most common benign bone tumor, they're usually found in the shoulder or knee.

A biopsy is done to rule out the rare chance it could be cancer.
