Cartilage tumors form in Cartilage tissue. They can be either benign (Chondroma) or malignant (chondrosarcoma).[1] Frequently these tumors appear in bone, and not in pre-existing cartilage tissue.[2] In some cases tumors that formed in other tissues may produce a cartilage-like matrix, an example of this is the pleomorphic adenoma of the salivary glands.
