Left: Large chondroma of lower left jaw in situ.
Right: Patient after recovery, post chondroma removal.
Note the tumor hung from the jacket, presumably to give a sense of size in relation to the now-healed jaw.
“Well, Thomas, it looks like you’re healing brilliantly, would you be a sport and hang your tumor on that nice jacket of yours whilst Mr. Johnson takes a photograph? Why, yes, it is saturated with preservative and dripping everywhere, but I’m sure your clothing will soak it up in a cinch. There, now, here you go - we shall string it to your shoulder. Perfect!”
Oh, you want actual information about the pictures? Well, chondromas are benign tumors, formed by cartilaginous tissues. They can form anywhere that cartilage exists, and can cause significant skeletal problems, but are not malignant, and unlike many other benign tumors, are not considered to raise the risk of cancer.
