  1. 1.Femoral Shaft Fracture

    A femoral shaft fracture is a break anywhere along the long, straight part of the femur (thighbone) known as the shaft. Since the femur is the longest, strongest bone in the body, it is fairly difficult to break it (car crashes account for the most femur fractures).

  2. 2.Fibrous Dysplasia of Bone

    This is a genetic condition where part of a bone develops incorrectly using the wrong type of materials (fibrous instead of bony tissue), causing a weak area of bone that is prone to fractures. This process begins before birth, and the cause of the gene mutation is not fully known.

    This is a lifelong condition, as the fibrous tissue will continue to grow in the same area.

    Rarity:
    Rare
    Top Symptoms:
    spontaneous bone pain, groin pain, pain in one thigh, spontaneous hip pain, upper leg bump
    Symptoms that always occur with fibrous dysplasia of bone:
