Did you know cancer is responsible for 1 in 4 deaths in the United States? Or that cancer is the second leading cause of death in the U.S?
Melorheostosis is a rare skeletal abnormality. It causes a lesion of bone to become overly thick and dense. The skin and soft tissues surrounding the bone lesion also harden. Melorheostosis tends to be limited to one extremity. Melorheostosis can cause pain, limit range of movement (if a joint is involved), or stunt the growth of an affected extremity.
