Chest Wall Tumours: Treatment Option

benign & Malignant Chest Wall Tumours

Chest wall tumours refer to abnormal growths or masses that develop in the tissues of the chest wall, which includes the bones, muscles, cartilage, and other structures surrounding the chest cavity. These tumours can be either benign or malignant.

Benign chest wall tumours are non-cancerous growths that do not invade nearby tissues or spread to other parts of the body. Common examples of benign chest wall tumors include osteochondromas and chondromas. These tumors typically grow slowly and are often discovered incidentally during imaging studies or physical examinations. While they are generally not life-threatening, they can cause symptoms such as pain, swelling, or discomfort depending on their size and location.


On the other hand, malignant chest wall tumours are cancerous growths that have the potential to invade nearby tissues or spread to distant sites in the body. The most common malignant chest wall tumours are sarcomas, which can arise from the bones, muscles, or other soft tissues of the chest wall. Malignant chest wall tumours require prompt medical attention and appropriate treatment to prevent further spread and manage the associated symptoms.
