Delayed closure, as well as grafting of a wound are well documented options and should be attempted in both the simple wound, those where early recovery is required.

However, due to several reasons, our bones develop abnormal cells that grow uncontrollably. This results in the formation of a tumour. It is important to know that most of these tumours are harmless.
