Ossifying fibroma  Go back to the list
Ossifying fibroma is a benign bone neoplasm. Clinically it appears as a painless slow-growing well-circumscribed swelling more often seen in the mandible. It is more commonly found in the third and fourth decades of life, especially among women. Radiographically, it appears as a well-demarcated lesion with radiodense and radiolucent areas. Surgical excision is recommended.
