os·te·o·chon·dro·ma

(os'tē-ō-kon-drō'mă),
A benign cartilaginous neoplasm that consists of a pedicle of normal bone (protruding from the cortex) covered with a rim of proliferating cartilage cells; may originate from any bone that is preformed in cartilage, but is most frequent near the ends of long bones, usually in patients 10-25 years of age; the lesion is frequently not noticed, unless it is traumatized or of large size; multiple osteochondromas are inherited and referred to as hereditary multiple exostoses.
[osteo- + G. chondros, cartilage, + -oma, tumor]

osteochondroma

A bony protrusion capped with cartilage, occurring most commonly at the ends of long bones. These are thought to be disorders of bone growth rather than tumours, but occasionally malignant change supervenes.
