Abstract

This chapter is not an exhaustive description detailing the characteristics of various types of bone tumors. It does, however, provide a paradigm to evaluate and classify types of bone tumors which allows for the creation of a useful differential diagnosis when a new bone tumor is encountered in clinical practice.
